OIP is excited to honor our amazing PA’s this week! National PA week is held every year from October 6th to October 12th. We hope you will join us in celebrating the invaluable service that these healthcare practitioners provide day in and day out here at OIP.

What is a PA?

A physician assistant (or PA) is a nationally certified and state-licensed medical professional. There are currently more than 100,000 clinically practicing PA’s in the United States! PA’s practice medicine on health care teams with physicians and other providers. They also prescribe medication in all 50 states.

What can a PA do for me?

•  Take your medical history

•  Conduct physical exams

•  Diagnose and treat illnesses

•  Order and interpret tests

•  Develop treatment plans

•  Assist in surgery

•  Write prescriptions

•  Much more!

Yes! PA medical and surgical services are covered by:

•  Nearly all private payers
