Meet Jennie Dellinger: 2014 PA Semifinalist
Jennie Dellinger, PA-C, MPAS, practices at Eastridge Family Medicine in Gastonia, NC.
Patient Kathy M. shares how this physician assistant made a difference in her life:
"I cannot say enough about Jennie Dellinger. I have battled with some problems for the past 7 or 8 years and she has been very instrumental in helping me get the care I need. After visiting two rheumatologists who weren’t able to help me, I went back to Jennie and she patiently listened to what I had to say as if I were the only patient she had. She referred me to another doctor and followed up with a call after the appointment. I feel blessed that she is my physician assistant.
Her compassion is only superseded by her dedication to never give up until she finds a solution. It was only after she sent me to the third rheumatologist that I was able to find a doctor who referred me to a neurologist, who in turn did a muscle biopsy that determined that I have myositis.
I know that I was a challenging patient; some physician assistants may have given up, but not Jennie Dellinger. I appreciate her and would love to recognize her for the quality of work and wonderful compassion she has for her patients."—Kathy M.
