As a medical provider, David Partch, PA-C, believes that education is power. "Teaching patients about their condition provides them with the tools to manage their health," says David. "The ability to listen to patients is the single most powerful tool a provider has."
David chose the medical field for the opportunity to make an impact on people's lives and to serve as a health advocate. "What I enjoy most about about being a physician assistant is seeing my patients benefit from taking an interest in their own health," he said.
After receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Warner Pacific College in Portland, Ore., David completed his master's degree in physician assistant studies from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Ore. He is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.
In his free time, David enjoys running, cycling, and spending time with his wife and son.
