Kaitlyn A. Granda, PA-C
Family Medicine Physician Assistant
I chose to become a physician assistant in midlife, after my first career as a modern dancer. The way the body moves and works has always fascinated me, so pursuing a second career in medicine seemed a natural extension of my interests. I have been a family medicine physician assistant since 2000 and have served as lead clinician at the Walltown Neighborhood Clinic since 2004. Our clinical site is small and personable, just the way I like it. Taking care of families is very rewarding to me. As my patients have aged, I've taken time to learn more about the diseases of aging and geriatric care in general. My practice includes young children, teens, folks in midlife, and the elderly. I love what I do and feel privileged to care for the people that I serve.
Training and Education
Clinical Focus and Research
I am currently engaged in a project to implement and review the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit. This project started after I participated in the Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Project, (GWEP) in 2017. The GWEP was created "to develop a health care workforce that maximizes patient and family engagement and improves health outcomes for older adults by integrating geriatrics with primary care." Always attempting to improve the services we can provide to our patients, I received extra training in Nexplanon insertion and removal, so that I am now able to offer this contraceptive service to uninsured women.
