New Provider Joins Fremont Family Physicians
John C. Fremont Healthcare District is pleased to announce that Sarah Makin, PA-C, a Physician Assistant, has joined the Fremont Family Physicians provider staff.
Makin is a recent graduate from the Physician Assistant Program at Saint Francis University, Loretto, PA. In May 2016 she attained a Bachelor of Science in Health Science and in May 2017 a Master of Physician Assistant Science. She was on the Dean's List from Fall 2012-Fall 2016, and inducted into the Saint Francis University Honor Society in 2016. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Minor in Biology. In June 2017 she acquired Certification from the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).
Makin's clinical rotations included seven months of Family Medicine experience with over 950 patient encounters in multiple settings including outpatient clinic, a long-term care facility, and an inpatient hospital. The Specialty rotations consisted of 200 hours each in Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, Behavioral Medicine, Women's Health, and General Surgery. Many of her rotations were performed at rural facilities.
Makin said, "I grew up in a small town and was seeking a position in a rural area. The friendliness of the town was what struck me the most about Mariposa when I visited for my interview at John C. Fremont. I was also impressed with the willingness of the providers and staff to mentor me as a provider. I feel my strong areas are in treating asthma and allergies, obesity, diabetes, hypertension and acute issues. In my training I most enjoyed developing the patient/provider relationship, building a trust and working collaboratively with them. My career goal is to provide excellent patient care with a focus on disease prevention, and health maintenance."
"We are so pleased that Sarah has joined us, and she is excited to be part of the Fremont Family Physician staff, and the Mariposa community. She started with us on Monday, December 4th. Her first few weeks will be devoted to learning our electronic health record system and working with Dr. Mimi Carter and Melissa Heyer, PA-C. We look forward to her starting her practice here at John C. Fremont," said Cindy McAfee, Director of Clinical Operations.
