Physician Assistant

Sarita Fage began her career in healthcare in 2003. While studying to become an EMT, she was also working as a home health aide taking care of a young woman with ALS. This experience helped her realize that healthcare was an ideal career choice for her. “When I was younger, I developed a strong interest in medicine and decided to pursue my career as a Physician Assistant several years later,” she explains.

Working at ReadyMED, Sarita enjoys the variety of cases she treats each day. She especially likes using her critical thinking and problem-solving skills to help her patients. Sarita loves interacting with her patients and educating them on their condition. “To provide the best possible care, it’s important to educate each patient so that they fully understand their diagnosis and treatment plan.”

Sarita believes it’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest advancements in medicine in order to provide patients with the highest level of care. “Some cases require more time and questioning, but in the end we all have the same goal – to provide proper patient care.” When she is not busy working at ReadyMED, Sarita enjoys playing the guitar, camping, reading and, most importantly, spending time with her family and friends.

Nurse Practitioner

Erin Froio decided to become an Orthopedic Nurse Practitioner because she wanted to expand her education and knowledge in the field of orthopedics. “I have spent my professional life enjoying and continuously learning about orthopedics. I chose this area because I feel that by appropriately treating a patient’s orthopedic issues it allows them to be active, which benefits all areas of their overall health,” she explains. “It’s really satisfying to be able to help get patients back to the activities they enjoy in life – no matter at what level that might be.” Erin believes that it is immensely important to listen to patients and decide together with them what the best treatment option will be – whether surgical or non-surgical. “It’s my job to thoroughly examine a patient and educate them as to what their options are.” Working as an Orthopedic Nurse Practitioner, Erin finds each day interesting and enjoys the challenge of the job, including assisting in surgery which she feels has really added to her clinical knowledge. In her spare time Erin enjoys running, hiking – or any activity outside with her three children.
