Whitney L. Crain, PA-C
My name is Whitney Crain and I am a Physician Assistant and a Registered Dietitian. I started my healthcare career as a dietitian focusing primarily in medical nutrition therapy and nutrition support. I received an additional credential as a Certified Nutrition Support Clinician. I worked as a dietitian for two years before going to PA school. I spent one year in Guatemala working in a pediatric ward and with the malnourished. I also worked back in the states with the geriatrics population.
Since attaining a Master’s degree in Physician Assistant studies, I have worked primarily in Family Practice. I do have additional training in both cardiology and internal medicine.
My practice philosophy is more of a holistic approach. I take into consideration the entire patient and confounding factors. I am a huge advocate for preventive medicine and healthy lifestyles. I strongly encourage healthy eating habits and a well-rounded lifestyle.
I encourage patients to be active and involved in their own healthcare and take the time to explain things to each individual. I provide education and resources to promote overall wellbeing.
Whitney received her Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics at Western Michigan University in Michigan in 2008 where she graduated with honors. She continued her studies and received her Masters of Science in Physician Assistant at Seton Hill University in Pennsylvania in 2013. Whitney has a host of Physician Assistant clinical rotations that has allowed her to gain a broad knowledge and experience in Medicine. Whitney is also a Registered Dietitian. We are proud to add her to our distinguished clinical team.
