Karly Byrd (Woodrick), PA-C

“How you make others feel about themselves, says a lot about you”

Karly Woodrick earned her Master of Science Degree in Physician Assistant Studies from Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York, and her Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology from Siena College. She is a Certified Physician Assistant and is a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants and the New York Society of Physician Assistants.

Karly chose to become a healthcare professional because it allowed her to directly impact someone’s overall wellness while creating interpersonal relationships. She enjoys educating patients about their current condition so they understand the relevance of their treatment plan.  Her parents were a big influence on her choice to become a healthcare professional after watching her mother as a nurse and father as a fireman and EMT. Karly chose to specialize in vascular health after witnessing how many of the comorbidites she was managing in primary care were derivates of vascular health.  Karly did her elective in vascular surgery while in Physician Assistant school at Le Moyne College and described this rotation as the perfect mix of operating room and office experience, along with personal relationships with patients. Karly has as special interest in prevention and wellness, and is passionate about halting disease progression.

Karly enjoys engaging in her community by mentoring high school students on healthcare careers. In her spare time, she enjoys doing outdoor activities like hiking and climbing the Adirondacks. She grew up with a family who owned a small ice cream business in Upstate New York and would work there during her time off.
