This book is dedicated to my teachers and mentors who have encouraged my professional development and believed in me long before I believed in myself. It is also dedicated to my hard-working support staff and PA colleagues whom I have had the true honor of working with—I could not do it without you. I am grateful to Dr. Bobby Chhabra, Jennifer Hart MPAS, PA-C, and Elsevier, Inc., for the opportunity to be a PA editor and author. Thank you to my best friend, Corey Rynders, for our exciting life together. And thank you to my parents for getting me off to a great start.—SDR
This book is for my PA colleagues who go to work each day to deliver exemplary medical care to their patients without fanfare or acclaim. I am thankful for great supervising physicians, Dr. Lloyd Dennis, Dr. David Diduch, and Dr. Mark Miller, who took a leap of faith in me as their first PA hire, giving me the knowledge and the confidence for this project. And to my husband, Joe Hart, who has been there from the beginning of this great PA ride.—JAH
