Physician Assistant Lola Achilova says she chose to become a medical provider so she could "have a meaningful interaction with people every day. I enjoy getting to know people and their families and connecting their way of life into their health."
She views her most important role as allowing patients to make well-informed decisions about their health care. "I love to help people lead better lives," she says. "I enjoy seeing little kids, new moms, obstetrics patients, as well as people dealing with chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension. My goal is to get to know people. Get to know their likes, dislikes, fears and what brings them happiness."
Lola earned her master's degree in physician assistant studies from Pacific University, where she also completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular Biology.
Born in Tajikistan with Russian as her primary language, she studied Spanish in school. She loves languages, different cultures and traveling.
