Patricia Rayna,
Medical Assistant

Patricia moved to Arizona from her home state of Texas where she was born and raised. She has three daughters and one princess (granddaughter). When she is not at work, she likes to spend time with her fiancé with whom she enjoys going to church and catching the latest movie. During her “me” time, she loves reading a good book. She misses her home state and although she has settled in Arizona very well, she absolutely loves going back to Texas to visit her daughters, her princess, her parents and the rest of her family. She has been in the Phoenix area for 4 years now and graduated as a Medical Assistant from Brookline College in 2018. She absolutely loves her new career, and her patients. Regarding our patients, she says, “I feel they are the best, and more like family, than patients,” and regarding our workplace she states,” The doctors and co-workers are amazing.“ She feels very blessed and happy to be a part of the Innova Medical & Spa team.

 

Angela “Angie” Givens
Medical Assistant

Angie was born and raised in Kankakee, Illinois. She has been settled in the Phoenix area since 2006, and visited Arizona many times prior to her settling here.

She is very family oriented.  Angie was a single mother of 4 sons and she is very proud to announce that she is now a grandmother of 14!  She is blessed that all of this wonderful family resides here in Arizona. Her weekends consist of filling her life with family, which is what she loves to do the most. There is a lot of hanging out, country cooking, and there are a lot of hugs and kisses going on, on the weekends. Every Friday and Saturday she is with her grandchildren, visiting a park, or swimming at her sister’s house.

At work her favorite thing to do is work with her patients to ensure their vitals are great, that they are getting the care they need, in a reasonable amount of time. It is important to her that her patients go home feeling like we did things right for them today.  She also assists in making sure we are stocked and ready to go before every appointment. Before you walk in the door, she is already making sure any procedure we do in office will run smoothly.

As a coworker, we really appreciate that Angie is the people person that she is; friendly, considerate and also very dependable. She is a total professional. When she takes a patient on, she advocates for their best care always, and her patients love her for it.
