Physician Assistants

Physician Assistants

Since 1989, HSS Physician Assistants (PAs) have been providing all aspects of patient care. Both hospital and private PAs have comprehensive responsibilities: performing history and physical exams, ordering and reviewing lab tests, assisting in surgery, writing prescriptions, and providing patient education.

HSS PAs work closely with their supervising physicians as well as other members of the interdisciplinary healthcare team to provide both efficient and high quality patient care.
