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 that was recognized by a Dermatology Physician Assistant. A need to help patients navigate the world of skincare products to create a medical grade routine for his or her individual needs and budget.

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

There are so many skincare products on the market. It's overwhelming even for someone working in the cosmetic medical field. I am here to help you learn where to spend your money!

What is a PA (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 interview and being accepted, PAs complete anywhere from 27-36 months of comprehensive medical training, graduate, pass the PANCE boards (Physician Assistant National Certification Exam), apply for jobs and are ready to work in any specialty with a physician.
