Physician Assistant Alyssa Fletcher
Alyssa grew up in Lake Zurich, IL and joined our team in 2020. She obtained a bachelor’s degree from University of Iowa in Human Physiology and attended PA school at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. Prior to PA school, she worked as a nurse assistant to orthopedic patients in a hospital setting as well as in the emergency room. She genuinely enjoys getting to know her patients on a personal level, giving them individualized care. One of her favorite parts of orthopedics is encouraging patients through the rehabilitation journey after surgery and she finds great reward when patients meet their personal treatment goals.
