Advanced Care Providers

The impact of the group of physician assistants at Fort Wayne Medical Oncology and Hematology cannot be overstated. They serve as extensions of our physicians, while also bringing their own insight and experience.

Each of these professionals have completed intensive training programs accredited by the Accreditation Review Commission on Education for the Physician Assistant (ARC-PA) and are nationally certified through the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA). In addition, they are members of the Association of Physician Assistants in Oncology (APAO). They work closely with our physicians to provide comprehensive services to our patients.
