Meet Our Physician Assistants

What is a Physician Assistant (PA)?

Sometimes it is difficult to get an appointment with the doctor immediately, but our patients can schedule an appointment with a physician assistant (PA) much sooner. Physician assistants are health care professionals licensed to practice medicine with physician supervision. The common roles and responsibilities for a PA at Lederman Kwartowitz Orthopedics & Sports Medicine include:

  • Conduct physical exams
  • Diagnose and treat illnesses
  • Provide counseling on preventative health care
  • Assist in the operating room
  • Conduct post-surgical and inpatient rounds
  • Suture lacerations and give injections
  • Perform minor surgical procedures such as aspirations and pin removals
  • Order and interpret tests such as X-ray, MRI, and CT scans

All of these actions are performed with the supervision and consultation of the attending physician. The physician-PA team can help increase efficiency and optimize patient care. Frequent consultation and review of patient care, by both the physician and the PA, assures that all patients are receiving the best possible care.

Physician assistants must graduate from an accredited program, and they must pass the national certification exam to obtain their state licensure. This is what the education of a physician assistant looks like:

  • Primary School: 12 years
  • College: 4 years
  • PA Program (Master's Degree): 2.5 years
  • Total: 18.5 years
