Kristin Koerten, PA - C 

"Having a cancer diagnosis or even a suspicion of cancer can be incredibly stressful and that’s why it’s important to me to develop a relationship with each patient."

I treat my patients the way I would want to be treated and strive to create an environment that provides a level of comfort in sharing concerns and fears as well as celebrations and triumphs. My goal is to be honest and open, but empathetic and understanding of each patient’s journey."
