Our Mid-Level Providers

Mid-level provider is a term used for Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners. They are partners with the physicians and can see you for many of your office visit needs and follow-up obstetrical appointments. By utilizing our mid-level providers our physicians are able to see patients with more complicated medical needs, for surgical procedures, for physician referral consults, and when needed to deliver a baby on short notice.  Having mid-level providers in the office, along with the physicians, guarantees your medical questions are answered and a plan of care is determined at your visit.
