Hi, I'm Mariella! I am a Board Certified Physician Assistant. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science at UCLA. Soon after, I made my journey to NYC, where I received a Master's of Science in Physician Assistant Studies, and was inducted into the Pi Alpha National Honor Society. I have worked in primary care for several years, and have enjoyed treating culturally and socially diverse populations. I am passionate about caring for patients in a holistic manner. This means recognizing mind, body, and spirit as equal contributors to a person's overall health. Rather than solely focusing on a medical diagnosis, I am interested in exploring my patients’ issues on a deeper human level. Here at Eden, I am fortunate enough to deliver care with this philosophy. I hope I have the pleasure of meeting you, either virtually or in person!
