Mr. Alfred Koos is our Certified Physician Assistant (PA). A PA is a nationally certified and state licensed expert in general medicine. A PA must graduate from an accredited PA program and then pass a rigorous exam. For Mr. Koos, becoming a PA was a natural decision, which was largely based on his personal background and passion for health, fitness, and wellbeing.
Before becoming a PA, Mr. Koos worked for several years as a health coach and physical therapy clinical assistant. Aside from enduring countless hours of physical therapy for his own athletic injuries as a football player, Mr. Koos also spent the early days of his career in sports medicine working with patients who suffered from debilitating body, spine, and brain injuries. During that time, he witnessed first-hand the frustration and fear that patients encountered upon realizing that conservative treatment options were not providing a long-term solution to their pain relief. Due to these experiences and his own background, Mr. Koos feels that compassion through empathy is the driving force behind his success as a Physician Assistant.
Mr. Alfred Koos received a Bachelor of Science in Physical & Health Education from Hofstra University, a Master of Education in Exercise & Wellness from Arizona State University, and a Master of Physician Assistant Studies from A.T. Still University.
In addition to being a Certified Physician Assistant, Mr. Koos also received certifications as a Corrective Exercise Specialist and Personal Fitness Trainer from the National Academy of Sports Medicine and National Exercise Association.
Mr. Koos is a strong and committed advocate for our patients. His primary focus and goal is to aid in our patient’s recovery through helping them and their families properly transition through all phases of specialty care and the surgical process.
When not practicing medicine, Mr. Koos very much enjoys traveling, spending time with his family, resistance training, corrective exercise, healthy cooking, going for a hike, or biking through many of the desert’s beautiful trails!
