“As a dermatology physician assistant, I appreciate that we can physically observe the conditions that we are treating. I find it rewarding that we are directly able to see the improvements in our patient’s skin. I truly enjoy the opportunity to make people look and feel better about the skin they’re in.” Elizabeth Penfold, PA-C
