Physicians Assistants

The Use of Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners at our Facility

The physicians of Affinity Clinic are dedicated to providing ongoing quality care for our community. Like most physician offices around the country, we have incorporated the use of midlevel providers into our practice to meet the needs of a growing patient population. This includes physician assistants and nurse practitioners.

As part of a team approach, you may be seen by one of our qualified midlevel providers during one of your patient care appointments or walk-in visits. This helps us maintain timely access for our patients. You can be assured that each of our trained and skilled midlevel providers are closely supervised by our doctors and will provide the topnotch care you expect and deserve.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We value our patients and thank you for your continued patronage.

 

Physician Assistants

What is a Physician Assistant (PA)?

Physician assistants are certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants and are state-licensed. They are health professionals who practice medicine as members of a team under a supervising physician. As part of their comprehensive responsibilities, PAs conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, perform procedures, counsel on preventive health care, assist in surgery and prescribe medications. PAs also specialize and have certifications in different areas of medicine, such as internal medicine, family practice, pediatrics, surgery or other areas.
