What is a Certified Physician Assistant?

My philosophy of care is to always listen to my patients and try to understand the root of their concerns. I want to provide comprehensive care for my patients involving every aspect of who they are as a person. A lot of times, patients aren't always forthcoming about what may be bothering them, and I look to have in-depth, personal conversations to help identify their needs. I look forward to creating relationships with my patients in which they feel comfortable and heard, ultimately allowing them to feel they have a safe haven within our office.
