Latest News & Updates
Meet Our Newest Team Member
Physician Associate: Bella Lui Caster, PA-C
Physician Associates (PA's) are highly trained healthcare professionals who are a part of the medical team. They are able to extend the care of Physicians and improve access to quality medical care. They work with a degree of autonomy but their scope of practice is defined by their relationship with their supervising Physician.
PA's can obtain medical histories, perform examinations and procedures, diagnose illness, prescribe medications, order, and interpret tests, and refer patients to specialists as required.
Since PA's are in the early stages of registration in New Zealand, there will be a limitation to their scope of practice. All PA's providing medical care at Dinsdale Medical Centre are checked and signed off by a GP.
