Physician Assistant Helps Patients Make Positive Changes
“My approach is to educate my patients on all possible treatment options so that we can decide together on the best treatment plan.”
Gabriela Crupi chose her future career based on her love of science and her desire to help others. A physician assistant role in a primary care practice was the perfect fit.
“I enjoy the variety of family medicine,” said Gabriela, “and I like being able to build a trusting patient-provider relationship over time. It gives you the background to deliver truly personalized healthcare.”
Gabriela chose to join Vanguard because of the practice’s progressive approach as a medical home for patients, with a range of services from behavioral health to medical specialties. “It’s exactly how primary care should be,” she said.
She emphasizes preventive care whenever possible, preferring to prescribe lifestyle changes over medication to help prevent future chronic conditions. Patients tell her they appreciate her candid, easy-to-understand explanations.
“I went into healthcare to help people make positive changes,” said Gabriela. “I want to help them to be as healthy as they can.”
When she’s not working, Gabriela enjoys exploring new areas with friends, hanging out with family, and cooking. She also enjoys boating and paddle boarding.
