Phillip Glamuzina is a physician assistant, certified by the National Commission of Certification of PAs, who supports Excelsior Express. Phillip, a Buffalo native, was drawn to becoming a PA because of his fascination with the complexity of the human body, anatomy, and physiology. Phillip's approach to patient care is empowering patients to know they're in charge; it's his job to help a person make the best decision for himself or herself. Phillip will always make sure to help patients navigate healthcare and their diagnosis as well as make sure they understand their options. When Phillip is in the exam room with patients, he hopes they feel seen and heard and that their concerns have been fully addressed.
