Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants
Allied health professionals, including physician assistants (PA) and nurse practitioners, work collaboratively with CSO physicians to provide comprehensive, patient-centered care. CSO’s licensed nurse practitioners and physician assistants are advanced practice clinicians. Working under physician supervision, they perform physical examinations, order tests, diagnose conditions, perform procedures and prescribe medication, among other duties.
Highly Honored Professionals
Our retired physicians Dr. Monroe Levine and Dr. Christopher Isaacs, plus Dr. Janssen’s nurse practitioner, Ruth Beckham, made numerous contributions to our high standards of excellence in clinical care and our reputation for exceptional bedside manner. Though they are no longer practicing medicine, Dr. Levine remains on our board of directors, and Ruth continues to support our research foundation on an “as needed” basis. After many years of practicing orthopedics, we continue to stay in contact with Dr. Isaacs, who is enjoying a well-deserved retirement in warm and sunny Arizona.
