Physician Assistants at Urology Associates
Urology Associates utilizes Physician Assistants (PAs) as a way to deliver exceptional care to our patients. Physician Assistants are highly trained medical providers that can diagnose conditions, develop treatment plans, order and interpret imaging and labs, perform various outpatient procedures, and prescribe medications. Our PAs and physicians work closely together to ensure the best possible care and outcomes for patients. This team approach allows for patients to be seen promptly, have more questions answered, and ensure their individual concerns are addressed.
