Lisa Van Horn, MMSc, PA-C
Ms. Van Horn comes to us directly from Yale University's Physician Associate Program. Though a recent grad, she is no newcomer to the discipline of dermatology. She brings with her an extraordinary seven years of preparation in the specialty as a former editor of dermatology texts and the administrator of a Mohs surgery fellowship program. This unique backgrounding in theory and diagnostics coupled with the fact that she holds an additional master's degree in Clinical Counseling Psychology signaled to us the makings of an unusually gifted provider. Her experience and training in psychological counseling also means that she views patients from an holistic perspective and is extraordinarily sensitive to the mental, emotional and physical well-being of her patients. She's warm and down to earth -- a real breath of fresh air, and we are very happy to have the pleasure of working with her. Ms. Van Horn has completed her fellowship in dermatology with Dr. Saruk and is now accepting patients.
Jason Saul, MMSc, PA-C
We are delighted to welcome Mr. Saul to our practice. Jason is currently completing his post-graduate training in dermatology here at DVDG and will begin accepting patients in the spring of 2018. We were not planning to add another Physician Associate to our staff, but when we met Jason, it suddenly seemed like an excellent idea. We were impressed by his level of commitment, maturity, studiousness, intelligence and easy-going style -- an unusual and obviously, winning combination.
A graduate of Arcadia University's highly respected Physician Assistant program, Jason grew up in West Chester, PA and comes from a medical family. Not immediately sure he wanted to follow in his parents' footsteps, he spent time in other occupations, in the course, of which, he came to better know himself and his talents. In the end, it turned out that medicine, and dermatology in particular, was where he wanted to be. We couldn't be happier that we found one another. We expect you will feel the same way.
