Virginia Conner, MPAS, PA-C, is a nationally certified physician assistant. She attended Saint Francis University in Loretto, PA, where she graduated in 2009 with a BS in Health Sciences and a Masters in Physician Assistant Sciences in 2010. Since then, she has spent most of her career practicing urgent care medicine, breast surgery, and, for a short time, pain management.
Through thousands and thousands of patient interactions during her career, she has noticed the need for patient-centered care. She aims to provide care based on the individual needs of the patient. She does this by listening to what her patients have to say, explaining the issues at hand, and completing a thorough workup or follow-up. Her main goal is for you, as a patient, to feel heard, validated, and better. Another very important goal is to use medications only when necessary and utilize a holistic approach (multiple modalities) towards feeling better, including nutrition, therapy, massage, acupuncture, meditation, etc.
When she is not seeing her primary care patients, she enjoys studying and practicing functional medicine (getting to the root of the disease in the body), spending time with her family of four, traveling, and investing time in her own health and wellness.
