Physician Assistant, an advanced practice degree for primary care providers who undergo extensive practical training and board certification, and are licensed to practice medicine including the full range of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.
When evaluating my patients, I enjoy getting to know about them as a whole, not just their medical profile. I find that learning their hobbies and interests often aids in treating them. I have spent a significant amount of my career working with the geriatric population. This experience has given me the privilege to hear some amazing stories and develop lasting relationships not only with my patients but with their family members as well.
How I stay healthy and happy
If I'm not working, you can find me in the water whether it be diving or swimming. These activities help me maintain balance. When I can't get to the water, I enjoy cycling.
