Our Physician Assistants
A Physician Assistant (or PA) is a highly trained medical professional who is there to provide care to select patients. They are not nurses or medical assistants; visits with the PA are no different than those with your regular physician. They can prescribe medication, order testing, etc. They will relay important information to your physician and you may still see your physician for future appointments if you so choose. Seeing a Physician Assistant provides more scheduling flexibility in meeting your requested date and time. Our Physician Assistants are here to ensure that you have timely and comprehensive care in our offices.
