Physician Assistant

A graduate of Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS), Laura Kissane has known since she was young that she wanted to have a career in medicine. Laura and her twin sister were born prematurely, so a lot of her childhood was spent in the doctor’s office. “We had some very positive experiences with providers and now I try to emulate them,” she explained. In high school, Laura did an internship with UMass Memorial in the cardiothoracic surgery department, and this only confirmed her desires to become a physician assistant. Laura’s favorite part of being an advanced practitioner is that she has the opportunity to help people in a very personal way. She chose to focus on urgent care because she is able to treat people with a variety of issues. “You never know what is going to come through the door. There’s never a dull moment in urgent care.” In her spare time, Laura loves hiking, cooking, and spending time with her family and friends.
