Advanced Practitioners

Physician Assistants (PAs) and Nurse Practioners (CRNPs) are key providers across many of Premier’s practice locations. Our advanced providers are all licensed and accredited by exams in the state of Pennsylvania and have advanced education in primary care or a variety of specialty areas. They provide many of the same services as your Premier doctor.

Patients frequently develop a strong relationship and sense of comfort with their doctor. Their confidence is important to us, and we want to provide high quality and efficient care during every office visit. Occasionally, as practice schedules become full, we rely on other providers to assist in your care.

Care at Premier is a team approach with many clinical team members providing care to a patient. As such, advanced providers collaborate and may have supervision from fellow Premier doctors sharing responsibility in a patient care.
