Additional Information

I have been a Neurosurgical Physician Associate and have completed over 1500+ neurosurgical cases as a Physician Associate First Assist in the past 7 years. I have worked at multiple designated Level 1 Trauma Hospitals taking neurosurgery first call for new consultations in the emergency department and in the critical care/ inpatient hospital setting. I have also worked in neurosurgical clinics for the past 7 years. I have a very good working anatomical knowledge of the spine and brain and have participated in dissection/ study in multiple cadaver labs. I have personally seen and evaluated neurosurgical patients as initial visits, pre-operative, intra-operative and post- operative setting, including inpatient and outpatient setting. From experience and repetitive exposure to the situation, I have developed a keen understanding/predicting appropriate clinical patient conditions/ symptoms after personally reviewing MRI, CT, CTA of the Brain, Cervical Spine, Thoracic Spine and Lumbar Spine. I have years of experience teaching nursing, medical and Physician Associate students from the didactic world to the clinical and surgical arena. I am committed to upholding the surgical and medical standard of care for neurosurgical physician assistants and my patients.
