What is a Physician Assistant?
PAs are health care professionals licensed to practice medicine under the supervision of a physician. Not only do PAs conduct physical exams and diagnose/treat illnesses, but also they order & interpret tests, counsel patients on preventive health, assist in surgery and write prescriptions. Within the physician/PA relationship, they exercise autonomy in medical decision-making and provide a range of diagnostic and therapeutic services. A PA’s practice may also include education, research and administrative services. Aaron is board-certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants and is a member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, the Society of Dermatology Physician Assistants and the Society of Army Physician Assistants.
