Essentia Health Welcomes Crystal Waagmeester

Crystal Waagmeester, PA-CPhysician Assistant Crystal Waagmeester has joined the Urology Department at the Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Brainerd Clinic in Brainerd, Minnesota.

Waagmeester has six years of experience caring for patients in Urology, and looks forward to continuing her practice in Brainerd. “I love the variety of patients I get to care for as part of the Urology team, in both the clinic and hospital settings,” she explains. “In some cases, we can identify and treat a problem in the short term, and other patients have more chronic issues that require a longer lasting relationship and care plan, which I really enjoy.”

Waagmeester earned a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from Jefferson College of Health Sciences in Roanoke, Virginia. She is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

“Good communication is vital to good patient care,” says Waagmeester.  “I think one of the most important things I can do for patients is to listen to them and make sure they feel heard and understood.”
