Amy Rodriguez PA-C joined Drossman Gastroenterology in October 2016 and will soon be leaving to embark on a new journey in life.

She was an integral part of the practice by enhancing its patient centered philosophy.  She participates in all clinic visits and coordinates medication prescriptions and pre-authorizations and communicates with patients through phone calls and messages to optimize their care in a timely fashion.

Amy graduated in May 2006 from the United States Military Academy at West Point where she was on the Black Knight Parachute Team.  Following graduation, she spent six years on active duty as a Paratrooper at Fort Bragg, North Carolina with two deployment tours to Iraq and one to Haiti as a Medical Service Corps officer.  She then decided to provide service in the healthcare field and attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for her PA school prerequisites and worked as a medical assistant at the Central Dermatology Center prior to attending Wake Forest Physician Assistant School, where she graduated in May 2016.  She and her graduate school partner were recognized for their research skills by receiving the Kitty Bowman Research Award

We would all like to say farewell from the DrossmanCare team, it has been a pleasure having you as part of our staff the last several months. Despite our sadness, we certainly wish Amy only the best and thank her for the hard work she has put in at Drossman Gastroenterology. Thank you Amy!
