It is our job as practitioners to remember that these are patients, not machines. What seems minute to us could be life changing to them, so we are responsible to be their rock through the process.

Hi! My name is Ava Shahdadian MPAS, PA-C. You pronounce my name Ava, like avocado. I am originally from the Pittsburgh area, but have family in Maryland which is how I found my way back here. I was enrolled in the five year accelerated physician assistant program at Saint Francis University which is located in central Pennsylvania. I have completed clinical rotations all over the country including in Utah, California, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.
