Our Physician Assistants

Our Physician Assistants, Joyce Jacobson and Ashley Day, are licensed and certified health care professionals who practice medicine in partnership with our physicians. They are held to the same standard of care that physicians provide. When you or any of your family members are treated by a PA, the physician is still involved. Our PA’s are an “extension” of the physician’s care. They work with our physicians as an integral part of our health care team.

Joyce and Ashley obtain medical histories, examine, diagnose, and treat patients. They order and interpret diagnostic tests, recommend/ implement treatment plans, and prescribe medications. Our PAs perform their roles within the scope of practice established by their supervising physicians. Generally speaking, they can perform any task delegated by the physician.
