What are Physician’s Assistants?

Physician Assistants are licensed health care providers who provide medical care under the supervision of a physician so that the physician’s services can be extended and patients are served in a timely and economical manner. Within that role they provide a variety of diagnostic, educational, and restorative services. While physician assistants typically work in a primary care setting, they also work in a variety of other venues and specialty areas.
