“We don’t treat patients like a number at RMA Seattle. Every employee here is thinking about our patients to ensure they are well taken care of during their visits from beginning to end.”
Physician assistant Paulinna Huynh graduated from the University of Oklahoma’s Physician Associate Program with a Master of Science degree in Health Sciences.
After first earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology with a minor in Chemistry from the University of Oklahoma, Paulinna worked as a nursing assistant at The Children’s Center in Bethany, Okla., where she provided daily nursing and rehabilitative care for children with complex medical needs. She later pursued her physician assistant degree and, after working in an endocrinology clinic in New York City, soon decided to focus specifically on women’s health.
“At the endocrinology clinic, I enjoyed working with the female population, especially the management of patients during pregnancy, and learning about the physiology of the female menstrual cycle,” Paulinna says. She then gained more experience working at Sound Fertility Care in Seattle before joining RMA in 2023, where she continues to find purpose and meaning behind her passion. “Working in a fertility clinic has been a rewarding experience, helping patients understand the basics of reproduction and helping them navigate their infertility journey.”
Based in RMA’s Seattle office, Paulinna sees firsthand the difference that RMA makes: “The team at RMA-SEA support each other in providing the best quality of care for our patients.” She is further inspired by her colleagues and mentors for their dedication and expertise, as well as by her patients for their “resilience in working to achieve their dream of building a family.”
Away from the office, Paulinna can be found checking out new restaurants and drinking “delicious” bubble tea, and she enjoys traveling to different cities, “especially when there’s good food!” Spending time with family and friends near and far is also always on her to-do list.

“When patients ask if there are any lifestyle changes that could optimize egg or sperm quality, I always tell them, ‘Everything in moderation.’ Taking a multivitamin/prenatal vitamin as well as vitamin D, along with an optimized diet and exercise, is always a good start.”
