Our Physician Assistant

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

Joyce Jacobson obtains medical histories, examines, diagnoses, and treats patients. She orders and interprets diagnostic tests, recommends and implements treatment plans, and prescribes medications. Our PA performs her role within the scope of practice established by their supervising physicians. Generally speaking, they can perform any task delegated by the physician.
