THE ROLE OF A PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT

“I became a certified physician assistant (PA-C) because I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. A physician assistant is a certified healthcare provider licensed by the state to practice medicine under the supervision of a physician. Our doctors and I work together as a team to provide quality healthcare for you. Furthermore, I am capable of providing many services, including physical examinations, diagnosis and treatment of illness, ordering and interpretation of laboratory studies and prescribing of medications, enabling our doctors to concentrate on performing diagnostic and surgical procedures.”
