Emily McIntire joined in the role of a Family Nurse Practitioner as a part of the growing practice at Brazosport Women’s Health in 2021. She is excited to be working in the local area where she grew up. Emily will be providing well woman exams, and addressing gynecological concerns including birth control, infection testing, and abnormal bleeding.
Emily has trained in offering pelvic floor muscle therapy as an adjunct to the urogynecological services offered at the practice. Emily’s patients, who meet with her once per week for 6-8 weeks, are seeing significant improvement in urinary incontinence issues.
“It is so rewarding to hear the success stories… for example, car rides that used to take 6 hours because of multiple stops to use the restroom are now made in 3 hours with zero stops or leakage. Talk about life-changing!”
Emily sees that women play essential roles in taking care of their families and communities. She believes that each woman deserves to have access to state-of-the-art gynecological treatment options irrespective of their age and geographical location to maintain a good quality of life. Having excellent women’s health care improves the opportunities for their success and that of everyone around them.
“I joined BWH because I love empowering women to own their health and wellness journey. So many of us suffer because we think we must accept certain changes in our bodies that are the result of childbirth, disease, injury, or aging. I believe that by promoting wellness in a gentle manner, we can work together to help you regain strength, facilitate healing, and improve your quality of life.”
Another reason that Emily joined BWH is because of Dr. Kadiyala’s emphasis on hope, positivity, discretion, and safety.
Emily grew up in Brazoria County. She spent her nursing career right here at home. She has experience in a variety of areas including urology, intensive care, surgery, and nursing management. As a FNP she can use her strengths of compassion, positivity, and thoroughness to ensure that patients receive the attention, emotional support, and follow-up they are seeking on their journey to maintain good health.
“We want you to feel comfortable to open up about your concerns and ask questions—especially about the things you may feel embarrassed talking about with anyone else.”
Emily spends her off time with her growing family and her sweet goldendoodle. She enjoys being outdoors, playing with her dog, as well as sewing and embroidery. During flu season she volunteers at local clinics administering flu vaccines.
Emily graduated Summa Cum Laude with her Master of Science in Nursing-FNP from Maryville University in St. Louis, Missouri. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Texas-Arlington where she was on the Dean’s List for academic excellence. She also received her ADN and LVN in nursing from Brazosport College.
