Jessica Case, PA-C, Joins Plymouth General Surgery
Plymouth General Surgery is pleased to welcome Certified Physician Assistant Jessica Case
to the team. Jessica joins Dr. Joe Casey and Dr. Jim Koren in providing continuing care for patients post-operatively and in the Wound Care &Hyperbaric Medicine Center. As a physician assistant, Jessica is a licensed and certified health professional who practices medicine with the same standards of care expected from the supervising doctors, and is an integral part of the healthcare team.
From Nashua, Jessica says she has always known she wanted to work in medicine. She began her medical career as an LNA in a long-term care facility in Nashua. After earning her bachelor’s in medical biology from the University of New England in Biddeford, Maine, she received her master’s from Franklin Pierce University. It was while she was doing her rotations at various facilities—from Dartmouth to a Native American reservation in North Carolina—that she concluded she wanted to work in rural medicine.
“I enjoy the community aspect of providing care in a smaller facility, where there is much more focus on individual patient care and providers working together,” explains Jessica. She says the patients have been very welcoming, and Doctors Casey and Koren are great teachers who are wonderful to work with. “I feel very much a part of the team.”
