Michelle Costello, PA-C
Education / Experience
Michelle graduated from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, School of Physician Assistant Studies. Her first experience as a Physician Assistant (PA) was in Neurosurgery. When she started her family, she took a leave from Neurosurgery, but continued her work in the field as an adjunct professor at the UT Southwestern School of Physician Assistant Studies. When she returned to clinical practice in 2000, she entered Women’s Health, where she has been ever since.
Michelle loves working with her female patients, as she can personally relate to the many stages they may be experiencing. She enjoys working with the adolescent and young adult patients while encouraging them to make healthy choices as they enter their adult lives. As she entered menopause, Michelle's personal experience with the benefits of Hormone Replacement Therapy spurred her to become certified with Biote to gain expertise with hormone pellets. She enjoys educating and leading women on their journey to a happier and healthier life as they mature. Michelle has always felt the calling to help others and relishes her role as a PA where she provides personalized health care and guidance to her patients.
Michelle has maintained her professional certification (PA-C) since her first job. A PA must pass a rigorous certification exam every 10 years (formerly every 6 years) as well as complete many hours of Continuing Medical Education to maintain their certification. Michelle is also a member of the Texas Academy of Physician Assistants and the American Academy of Physician Assistants.
Michelle values her quality time with her busy family: husband, three sons, a daughter-in-law, two stepchildren, and two grandchildren. She is looking forward to the arrival of her third grandchild in May 2023. When she has free moments, she enjoys taking long walks with her husband, their corgi and golden retriever. When the weather is nice, you are likely to find her wrapped up in yard work, or an outdoor project. Michelle recently relocated to Weatherford, from the country, where she and her husband cared for her mom and horses.
All three sons played varsity soccer through high school, and Michelle was the Booster Club Secretary for two years. During this time, she attended innumerable games around the DFW Metroplex. The youngest recently graduated with his MBA, after playing Ultimate Frisbee throughout college, including winning Nationals twice. She is very proud of having raised three amazing, smart, athletic and successful young men, while surviving the teen years!
Michelle is enjoying her new chapter in life in Weatherford as an empty nester and a grandmother.
