Vicki Traxler - Women's Health Clinic in Naples, FL

Vicki Traxler Physician Assistant

Vicki Traxler joined Naples Obstetrics and Gynecology in 2001. She is a Physician Assistant, Certified, (PA -C). This means that every year she takes courses, attends lectures and accumulates Continuing Medical Education credits in a variety of specialties. Every six years she re-sits her medical boards. This is like taking your final exams every six years. Note that her boards are in general medicine, not limited to OB-GYN.

Vicki has 30+ years in medicine, 20+ years in obstetrics and gynecology, and 10+ years in neurosurgery experience as a Physicians Assistant. Vicki's ongoing education and experience contribute to her very high professional standards in medicine.

A wonderful gift to medicine and her patients is Vicki's exceptional level of care. Patients who know her find that she takes the time necessary to review and explain conditions, diagnoses and treatment plans. Her faith in her own medicine and her physicians' medicine is what empowers her to allay the fears some patients may have and provide the mental and emotional confidence in treatment that enhances the well-being of all of her patients.
Patients that are new to Vicki are very quickly at ease with her. Her always-ready smile and gracious ways relay to new patients their importance to her as persons as well as patients.

Vicki Traxler, PA-C.
