Meet Our APP Staff: Southeast Pain & Spine Care


November 12, 2020

Our offices boast a skilled team of providers for your visit and care. In addition to a Physician, Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) are a type of provider you may be accustomed to seeing, as they’re a large part of the modern healthcare workforce. Our APP staff is comprised of Physician Assistants (PAs) and Nurse Practitioners (NPs), and they bring a dynamic contribution to our practice. These providers autonomously diagnose, treat, order and interpret diagnostic imaging, prescribe medications, perform procedures, and refer for therapies and interventions, in collaboration with physicians and your healthcare team. This means that your typical follow-up care and minor procedures, evaluations for new or acute issues, and initial visit with our practice is likely to be with one of our skilled APPs.

These providers are often able to provide a unique perspective to your care by the nature of their professions. Nurse Practitioners work as registered nurses (RN) before completing NP school. Physician Assistants have medical field experience that can range from EMT to RN as well before PA school. It is this experience that allows our APPs to bring diverse and thorough perspectives to the care we provide. We take pride in getting to know our patients and their needs, and will always work to make sure the patient is getting the best care possible.

Our APPs take pride in getting to know our patients and being able to spend extended time with each patient. It’s this relationship that makes all the difference as pain can evolve over time, and close communication is key.
