Hello! I’m Ian-Vi Trinidad, but you can call me Ian! I went to the University of Oklahoma for my Bachelors in Nursing, and worked as a Women’s and Children’s nurse for five years. I also served as a Labor and Delivery nurse in the Air Force for four years while I pursued my Master’s degree. I have worked with Dr. St. John at Bay Area Women’s Care since 2011. Working with and educating women of all ages in order to achieve their best health is my passion, and I am excited to now be able to offer some of the latest techniques in aesthetic medicine. I believe every woman should be their own definition of amazing, and look forward to helping each of my patients achieve that goal.

Hello, I’m Pat St. John. I went to Medical School at the University of Vermont, and spent the next four years learning the specialty of OB/GYN. I began my OB/GYN practice, Bay Area Women’s Care, in 1987 and have continued to treat women in the Tampa Bay area for the past thirty plus years. In 2013, I transitioned my office to a GYN only practice, allowing me to better serve our non-pregnant patients. During this time treating my patients, I have realized how many of my patients are looking for additional ways to look and feel their best, so Dr. Ruiz and I decided to open Bay Area Women’s Wellness, an office dedicated to making our patients feel good about themselves at any age. I have always enjoyed working with my patients to help them enjoy better health, and now I look forward to being able to offer safe and effective, non-invasive procedures which will help them live and age with the confidence they deserve.
Hi, I’m Ivy Ruiz. I was born and raised in San Juan, PR. I moved to Florida to obtain my bachelor and medical degree at the University of South Florida in Tampa. I completed 4 years of OB/GYN specialty training at the State University of New York in Buffalo. I have been caring for women in the Clearwater area since 1993 when I joined Diagnostic Clinic. I then joined Bay Area Women’s Care in 2017, where I have been able to continue to care for women’s needs through all stages of life. After many combined years of medical practice, Dr. St. John and I decided to open Bay Area Women’s Wellness, an office where we could provide the anti-aging, aesthetic procedures that our patients are looking for in a comfortable environment with the providers they trust. I look forward to now being able to assist all of my patients achieve their cosmetic goals and to empower them to take the best care of themselves.
