BizLook: Dr. Virginia Vaughan
Dr. Virginia Vaughan is passionate about all areas of her busy OB/GYN practice, from delivering babies to women’s wellness to obesity management. But after 35 years in practice, what she loves most is the enduring relationships she has developed with her patients.
Treating the Whole Person
Dr. Vaughan is part of Crossway Medical Clinic, a group of independent physicians who practice together under the same roof. As a doctor in private practice, she isn’t constrained by patient quotas or time limits. She can get to know her patients, and their conversations range beyond primary medical concerns. “They might ask me about anything—parenting, what it’s like to go through menopause, having stepchildren,” she says.
Crossway is a Christian clinic, but all patients are welcome regardless of their beliefs. “I don’t bring up faith unless a patient does,” she says.
The team at Crossway has taken many precautions to keep patients safe during the pandemic. Patients are taken directly to a treatment room on arrival, and strict sanitizing protocols are followed.
Focusing on Wellness
Dr. Vaughan trained at OU. She is board certified as an OB-GYN, and she also offers obesity management. She accepts most major insurance plans, as well as Medicare and Medicaid.
One part of her practice that Dr. Vaughan is especially excited about is the Viveve treatment for women. This painless in-office procedure treats vaginal laxity and minor incontinence. It works by stimulating collagen production in vaginal tissues.
Dr. Vaughan encourages everyone to keep prioritizing their health during the pandemic. “I find it troubling that people are putting off health care,” she says. “They think they can wait, and that’s not always accurate. Be as careful and as safe as you can be.”
