Curtis Boyd M.D. is nationally known for developing abortion procedures and standards of care. He is also recognized for his expertise in pain management and minimizing surgery risk. Furthermore, Dr. Boyd was involved in establishing the National Abortion Federation (NAF) and is a founding member of the Federation’s Board of Directors. NAF serves as a forum for abortion providers and others committed to providing quality abortion services so that they remain accessible to all women.
Glenna Halvorson-Boyd Ph.D, Dr. Boyd’s wife, has served on National Abortion Federation’s Board of directors and as NAF’s President for two years (1984-1986). She is an accomplished counselor, trainer and consultant with a national reputation for her training of professionals in this field. Dr. Halvorson-Boyd has a Ph.D. in Human and Organizational Development.
Together, they are personally and professionally committed to freedom of choice on a local, state, national and international level. In 1972, Santa Fe, NM passed law so the doctors could open their first abortion practice. Since then, the Drs. Boyd have developed standards that serve as benchmarks for other abortion facilities throughout the country.
To ensure high standards of quality care, Dr. Boyd and Co-Director Glenna Halvorson-Boyd, Ph.D., oversee the professional staff at both Southwestern Women’s Options and Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center. The physicians are all experienced specialists in abortion procedures early in pregnancy through later in pregnancy. Similarly, our staff provides an additional level of training and experience. They are registered nurses, and licensed vocational nurses, medical assistants, trained counselors and administrative personnel.
Our degreed counselors at Southwestern Women’s assist and support you before, during, and after your abortion. Their specific role is to make your experience here as positive as possible. Just as important, our professional support staff is highly experienced. In other words, you’ll be in competent, caring hands when you come to our facilities. We recognize that not all who are capable of pregnancy identify as women. With a staff of both medical and counseling professionals, there is a strong emphasis on in-service training and cross training to provide a coordinated, team approach to full healthcare.
