About Karina L. Rea, PA-C

  • Karina Rea only sees patients for illness and injury. Patients should always follow up with their primary care physician (PCP).

    Karina Rea was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, and at age 12, moved to Seguin in Central Texas. In her free time, she loves spending time with her daughter and husband. Photography has always been one of her passions, capturing the essence of memories on film. Mrs. Rea also enjoys spending time outdoors, exercising with her camp gladiator family, and attending church services. One of her favorite area venues is the McKenna Children’s Museum in New Braunfels, where she takes her daughter, and says, “the opportunity to watch her exploring and learning new concepts while having fun is one of my most pleasurable experiences.”

Growing up, I had several health conditions that made me realize I wanted to have the knowledge to care for myself and my family. My parents worked hard to provide the best possible care for my brother and me, which motivated me to pursue a career in health care to one day provide the same exceptional care for my own family and others. I believe in treating others as I myself would want to be treated. This allows me to provide care with empathy and compassion. Providing positive patient experiences is one of my highest priorities in delivering optimal patient care.

    I hope you will read and listen to my previous explanation and suggestions. Right now I feel that my health and well being is not being valued by ARC.

    Wait time is long. It's frustrating to wait nearly 40 min for a 5 min visit. My needs get met but it's exasperating when I arrive on time but wait between 30-45 min to be seen. This is a problem with ARC not necessarily this particular health care provider.

    PA Rea was so very thorough and took her time with me. I would love if she were my PCP!!!
