  • Physician Assistant

    A Physician Assistant is a medical professional who works with a team of other doctors to diagnose and treat a variety of illnesses and health disorders. They are legally licensed to practice medicine, though they do not go through the same rigorous schooling as doctors. However, these professionals are more than able to help patients with most medical conditions, and they work alongside doctors to ensure they can give adequate care to their patients.
