THE BEST HELP YOU CAN FIND
Our PAs undergo rigorous medical training and are graduates of accredited PA programs. They complete comprehensive testing in general medicine before they are licensed and certified, and they participate in extensive continuing education programs. Our PAs are certified as medical generalists with a foundation in primary care. They have the experience to make life-saving diagnostic and therapeutic decisions, working both autonomously or cooperatively with a team of medical professionals.
Our nurse practitioners can prescribe medication, examine patients, diagnose illnesses, and provide treatment, alleviating some of the burden placed on physicians. In fact, in 20 states, our nurse practitioners have “full practice authority,” meaning they don’t have to work under the direct supervision of a physician. Their experience as working nurses gives them a unique perspective to patient care, and their advanced studies qualifies them to assume additional duties that are typically left to physicians.
Our surgical first assists are among the industry’s best. Our first assistants actively participate and play an important role in surgical procedures. Their duties may include providing exposure, hemostasis, tying, or sewing, in addition to other duties not left to the scrub nurse or technician and all as prescribed by the primary surgeon overseeing the procedure.
