About

Sydney Givens, PA-C

I’m Sydney Givens, a Board-Certified Physician Assistant, from Dothan, Alabama born and raised.

One of my first loves was reading. A love of words led to learning Spanish and majoring in Latin American Studies at Samford University in Birmingham, AL. This choice in major led to taking a Medical Spanish class, which introduced me to the PA profession. 

After teaching English in Spain, I attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s (UAB) Master’s of Physician Assistant Studies Program. I  have worked in Dermatology since 2017. 

I started Skincare By Sydney in 2020 to offer virtual skincare consults from a medical perspective, at accessible times, for busy schedules. I see patients in office and virtually  at Southern Institute of Plastic Surgery for skincare consults and basic dermatology needs, including yearly complete skin exams.

Background

Skincare by Sydney grew from a need to help patients navigate the overwhelming world of skincare products. My purpose is to create a medical grade routine for your needs and budget.

I truly believe that every product doesn’t need to be expensive.

There are so many skincare products on the market and it can be overwhelming even for someone working in the cosmetic medical field, but don't worry! I am here to help you learn where to spend your money!

What is a Physician Assistant?

PAs write prescriptions and see patients independently but work registered with a MD or DO.

To become a PA one must complete a 4-year bachelor's degree along with specific prerequisite classes (much like medical school minus the physics pre-reqs), take the GRE, then apply to accredited Physician Assistant Programs.

After being invited to an interview and being accepted, PAs must complete 27-36 months of comprehensive medical training. Following graduation, they have to pass the PANCE boards (Physician Assistant National Certification Exam), apply for jobs, and then they are ready to work in any specialty with a physician.
