Mary Duh, Physicians Assistant-Certified (PA-C)
Mary Duh, PA-C, graduated from the UWL-Gundersen-Mayo Physician Assistant program in 2009. She is certified through NCCPA and is currently going through recertification. She worked at Mayo Clinic in Dermatology for 12.5 years. In October 2021, she welcomed baby #5 and made the decision to be a stay-at-home mom for some time. She homeschools her children, breeds double doodle dogs, manages their rental properties, is a Brand Partner with Young Living Essential Oils and has a small hobby farm with dairy goats, chickens and ducks. She dearly missed taking care of patients and welcomed the opportunity to do so with NFC. She loves taking a holistic, natural approach with patients whenever possible.
What is a Physicians Assistant?
Physician Assistants (PAs) are licensed health care providers who are qualified by academic and clinical training to practice medicine under the supervision of a physician. Modeled on physician training, PAs undergo intensive education in Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, Surgery, Psychiatry, Obstetrics & Gynecology, and medical/surgical specialties.
PAs provide comprehensive medical care including:
- Diagnosing and treating acute and chronic conditions
- Prescribing medications
- Conducting health histories and physical examinations
- Ordering and interpreting diagnostic tests
- Performing procedures and treatments
- Managing patients in clinics, hospitals and rural areas.
PAs practice in all specialties, write more than 330 million prescriptions and see more than 257 million patients each year.
The use of “PA-C” is limited to certified PAs who comply with the regulations of the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants and who have passed PANCE.
