Gastroenterology Physician Assistant Vesna Ader

Meet Vesna Ader, Gastroenterology Physician Assistant with The Oregon Clinic. “I have found that delivering thorough and compassionate care begins with listening to the patient. Hearing the patient’s story is essential to attaining an accurate diagnosis, while also allowing insight into the far-reaching effects of a disease on social functioning, independence, and psychological well-being. Understanding the personal impact of a disease allows me to customize therapy and give patients the knowledge they need to become a valued partner in decision-making.”
