Our physicians practice in teams with our Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioner to ensure high-quality care when you need it.
Physicians Assistants (PAs) and Nurse Practitioners (NPs) have several years of post-graduate education in diagnosis, treatment and preventative care. They take medical histories, do physical examinations, make diagnoses and treat acute and chronic illnesses. Our PAs and NPs practice under the supervision of a physician, and both PAs and NPs will consult with physicians when out of the scope of their practice. They are licensed to prescribe most medications needed in the care of our patients.
