Juan Prieto PA-C ATC

As a Physician Assistant in Orthopaedic Surgery and an Athletic Trainer, my goal is to work alongside patients to help them return safely to an active lifestyle. I am aware of the dedication, determination and sacrifice required to provide the best care for all patients. My goal is to provide the best technical, practical and evidence-based medicine available. I have provided patient care in a variety of clinical settings from military operations to professional, college, and high school sports.

I served in the U.S. NAVY as a Fleet Marine Force (FMF) Hospital Corpsman and a Surgical Technologist. I am an Athletic Trainer and I have worked with athletes at all levels. Ultimately, my role as a Physician Assistant in Orthopaedic Surgery is to provide high quality advanced musculoskeletal healthcare. I also work with the Northern Arizona University Department of Physician Assistant Studies as a Regional Clinical Coordinator.
