Kristina E. Bauer
Kristina is a highly skilled, board certified Physician Assistant. She received her Bachelor of Science in Cardio-pulmonary Sciences degree from the University of Central Florida. Her love of warm, but less humid, weather brought her to Arizona, where she received her Master of Science degree in Physician Assistant Studies from A.T. Still University, in Mesa. A major responsibility of a physician assistant is to make sure that the patient’s psychological problems are not due to an underlying (hidden) medical condition, such as a brain tumor, hypothyroidism, or toxicity from other medications. In Kristina’s free time, she enjoys hiking, running (she’s run over ten marathons), wake boarding, surfing, and snowboarding. Kristina loves to spend weekends with her husband on the boat or watching football if they aren’t traveling.
What her peers have to say, “Kristina is extremely helpful to her patients with a variety of issues. Despite having a busy schedule, she is almost always able to schedule an appointment within a few hours of patients calling and responds to patients email or phone questions in between appointments. I’ve worked and personally visited many providers in my life and it’s rare to have one as knowledgeable, accommodating, and concerned as Kristina.”
