What is a Physician Assistant?
Physician assistants are health care professionals licensed to practice medicine under physician supervision. Physician assistants evaluate patients, perform physical examinations, order and interpret tests, diagnose and treat illnesses, assist in surgery and write prescriptions. While physician assistants work in all health care environments, traditionally physician assistants have chosen to serve in primary care.
