My Passion for Healthcare

As early as I can remember, I was interested in healthcare. I worked as a ophthalmology technician while getting my bachelor’s degree in biology. When my brother had a tonsillectomy, he had a Physician Assistant involved in every aspect of his care. After speaking with him, I decided to pursue my career as a physician assistant. Encouraged by my family and friends, I went to Miami to get my master’s degree. Working as a physician assistant is extremely fulfilling. I am extremely passionate about my patients and giving them the best care.

My Clinical Focus

Physician Assistants are licensed health care professionals trained in the same format as physicians. PAs practice medicine on healthcare teams with physicians and other providers. PA who specializes in surgery assistance will have extensive knowledge of surgical procedure as well as specific areas of healthcare studies. The primary role of the surgical PA is to assist licensed physicians in patient surgery. However, their involvement from initial patient assessment to post-surgery follow-up care enables surgical PAs to offer excellent continuity of patient care.
