Lindsey Washburn’s interest in medicine was sparked by a life-changing event. “My mom was diagnosed with cervical cancer when I was 8. I saw her through treatment and chemo until she ultimately passed away when I was 12. I went into college knowing I wanted to go into medicine.”
Originally, Washburn thought she would become a physician, but when she met two physician assistants (PA) at her church, she changed her mind. “I shadowed them when I was in college and thought the field really suited my skill set really well.”
After completing her undergrad degree at Texas Tech, Washburn enrolled in the university’s PA program. She spent two years with a family medicine practice after her graduation, until a urology practice unexpectedly came calling in 2010.
“I spent five years working with several physicians who are now part of the foundation of Urology Partners of North Texas—Dr. Trey Moore, Dr. Scott Thurman, and Dr. Ira Hollander (Dr. Adam Hollander’s father) and loved doing so until my family located out of the area due to my husband’s career.”
When Washburn and her family returned to the Dallas-Fort Worth area in 2022, she reached out Dr. Moore and he immediately brought her into the UPNT fold. She’s delighted to be working alongside Dr. Moore and Dr. Thurman again, treating men and women for a variety of urologic conditions.
Along with caring for new patients, she also enjoys reunions with patients she cared for before she moved away. “I find I have good rapport with all my patients and they trust me, which I very much appreciate,” she reveals. “That trust allows me to help them on their journey to better health.”
When Washburn isn’t caring for her patients, chances are the Midland native is on an RV adventure with her husband and children to one of our country’s beautiful national parks, or fishing with her dad at Possum Kingdom Lake. “We are so happy to be back in Texas with all of our good friends and family,” she says.
