Physician Assistant  PA

Physician assistants are mid-level practitioners licensed to practice medicine with a physician supervision. PA's can treat patients and, in most states, prescribe medicine.  PA's in surgical practices also serve as first assists in surgery.  PA's provide medical services that are reimbursed under Medicare and third party insurances.
