Advanced Practice Providers - Physician Assistants

   Physician Assistants are nationally certified and state licensed medical providers trained to diagnose and treat patients as well as prescribe medication.  Thanks to an education modeled on the medical school curriculum, PAs learn to make life-saving diagnostic and therapeutic decisions while working autonomously or in collaboration with other members of the healthcare team.  They are certified as medical generalists with a foundation in primary care, and receive further specialty training within the practice setting.

   PAs are trusted healthcare providers. Studies have shown that they help reduce hospital readmission rates, lengths of stay, and infection rates. Today, there are more than 115,500 certified PAs practicing in the United States, and we have five very talented PAs within our practice.
