Northwest Florida Community Hospital has added a new provider to their roster of physicians, nurse practitioners and specialists to better serve the community.
Physicians Assistant Makynzie Oâ€™Bryan graduated from Florida Stateâ€™s School of Physician Assistant Practice in 2019. Immediately after graduating, Oâ€™Bryan began working as a dermatology PA for Kennedy Dermatology in Tallahassee.
After focusing on both general dermatology and aesthetics for three years, Oâ€™Bryan chose to expand her scope of practice. Her work in urgent care and primary care with heavy focus on skin gives Oâ€™Bryan a way to help patients faster.
â€œMany patients have to travel or wait for long periods of time prior to being seen by specialists,â€ said Oâ€™Bryan. â€œI am hopeful that my services will help bridge a gap by allowing patients to be seen sooner and be provided with quality care and education.â€
Oâ€™Bryanâ€™s services include identification of skin cancers, actinic keratosis, and atypical moles as well as treatment of eczema, psoriasis, acne, warts, rashes, and other skin disorders.
Treatments with cryotherapy and biopsies of suspicious lesions can often be done on the same day of the visit.
â€œI am also comfortable with treatment with biologic agents for multiple conditions (psoriasis, eczema, hidradenitis suppurativa),â€ Oâ€™Bryan said. â€œ I am able to perform limited treatment of certain types of skin cancers in office or refer to appropriate providers for wide excision or Mohs surgery if necessary.â€
