Meet the newest doctor with the Arizona Wellness Center for Women!
Patty Shay is very excited to be starting at Arizona Wellness Center for Women. She received her Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Michigan and continued on to medical school at Wayne State University. She relocated to Phoenix in 2009 for her residency training at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center and is looking forward to building a career focused on gynecology. Some of her professional interests include: minimally invasive surgery, urinary incontinence and adolescent health.

Patty was raised in the metro Detroit area with her parents and older sister. Her mother is a real estate agent and she is proud to follow in the footsteps of her father, who is now retired from his career as an Ob/GYN.

We hope to have a more in-depth conversation with Dr. Shay to share with you in next month’s newsletter.
