Our Physicians Assistants and Nursing team are vital health care extenders.
Our practice relies on a deep bench of Physician Assistants and Nursing Specialists to see you daily in clinic, assist in surgery and to check on patients as they make rounds in the hospital. PA’s will chart your progress and keep your surgeon up to date on your recovery. PA’s gather information for the physician on ER patients, and assist in prepping patients for surgery. You will see your PA before and after surgery and often at clinics during the week for urgent needs, injections and pre-surgical health physicals. The specialized nursing team in our Bone Health Clinic is uniquely qualified in fracture care and prevention. With exceptional training and certification, each is a valuable, capable and compassionate member of your care team.
