Shawn Palmer is a Physician Assistant at Dove Creek Integrated Healthcare. He has worked at the clinic since 2017, and treats patients of all ages who have a variety of medical conditions. He said he enjoys living and working in a small town.
“The clinic has been here since the ‘70s, and it is essentially that first line of defense for healthcare within 30 miles.”
“The main reason I became a healthcare provider, and why I enjoy it, is that I can help solve problems for people and help them feel better,” he said.
Shawn attended school at BYU-Idaho for his bachelor’s degree, and then to Salus University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for the Physician Assistant program.
Shawn and his wife have three daughters. Shawn is from Idaho, born and raised. “I grew up in a small town and loved just about every minute of it.” They all enjoy the outdoors and being together as a family. “I went into medicine because I like to help people, and love to learn about the body and its functions,” he said. “Health is such a precious part of our lives, and maintaining it is one of life’s greatest challenges,” Shawn says he looks forward to helping patients achieve their health goals and enjoy life.
