National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants
Patricia received her master’s degree as a physician assistant from the University of Washington MEDEX program. Prior to joining The Polyclinic, she provided addiction services and primary care in Lakewood, Wash., and continues to volunteer at Lahai Health, a free clinic in North Seattle.
“I was fortunate enough to have two nurses as parents, and grew up surrounded by medicine. I could never imagine doing anything else.”
Patricia provides primary care to adult patients, with special interests in preventive medicine, integration with mental health, and addiction medicine. She performs minor in-office procedures.
Patricia enjoys lots of outdoor activities in the Pacific Northwest when possible, from sailing to skiing and everything in between. She loves spending time with her family, and is hoping very soon to rescue a dog.
“I find the most joy when I feel that genuine connection with my patients, and we can work together towards their health goals.”
