Physician Assistant Penny Gneiting says the most important part of her role as a health care provider is to listen. “I love building relationships based on trust and mutual respect,” she says. “I’m honored when patients choose to confide in me about their health concerns and fears. It’s a privilege.”
She emphasizes nutrition and exercise, and the importance of lifestyle and self-care in preventing and treating the most common health problems. She previously worked as a physician assistant at the Minnesota Mayo Clinic, in post-cardiac surgery intensive care.
Penny earned her master of physician assistant studies from Idaho State University, where she also completed her Bachelor of Arts in Economics and International Studies.
When she’s not working, Penny loves to travel and has studied abroad in Kenya, Germany and Scotland. She has also done volunteer work in Bolivia, Guatemala and Peru. Her hobbies include backpacking, trail running, gardening and studying languages and music.
I am extremely happy with Penny's care at the 2 appts I have had with her. For scheduling though when I have a problem that is causing a lot of pain I would prefer to have a same day or next day appt and not have to wait 4 days for the first provider available.Providence Patient
