John Danovskis is a physician assistant, certified by the National Commission of Certification of PAs, who supports Dr. Daniel Vargo. John's ambition to become a physician assistant was influenced by his father's experience as a longtime cancer patient. John accompanied his father to the majority of his appointments and recalls the care and compassion and care that his father received, which he felt was extended to him as well. John knew that one day he wanted to deliver the same kind of compassionate care to his own patients. John describes himself as a visual learner as it applies to his approach to patient care; Whenever able, he will use models or visual aids to help his patients better understand what's causing their pain or condition.
