"I am a critical care nurse with over 30 years of experience. My intro to PMA Health was for a pre-op clearance after I severely damaged my knee. They were able to see me and have my labs ready in about 24 hours. Because of their understanding, the surgery was done on time. My post-op recovery has been shortened significantly. I was seen by Faith Saunders, PA. My experience with the entire team was extremely positive. Faith was very sensitive and addressed all of my needs. At the time, I did not have a primary care provider. Faith demonstrates (in my opinion) excellent clinical skills and base knowledge. I will be following up with her and PMA for all my primary care needs. I highly recommend PMA without any reservations."
