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.

He is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

I had never worked with a Physician's Assistant before and Mr. Petrach took the time to explain his training, expertise, and licensure. I am also pregnant, and he took the time to listen to my concerns about taking medication as well as flexibility in my treatment.

This care provider was very attentive, but he was seeing me instead of the doctor I had made an appointment with, because that doctor was 45 late. He did a good job being a substitute who did not know my issues.
