“The additional specialty training received by these individuals is clear evidence of our medical staff’s dedication and commitment to high standards of care and outcomes for our patients,” said Dr. A.J. Dowidowicz, medical director for the Adirondack Health Emergency Department.
Certified physician assistants are licensed and certified health-care professionals who practice medicine with physician supervision and bring a breadth of knowledge and skills to patient care. Though their role in any particular workplace is determined in consultation with the supervising physician, certified physician assistants take medical histories, conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, counsel on preventative care, assist in surgery, perform a variety of procedures and write prescriptions.
