Megan Markes, Family Medicine

Physician Assistant Megan Markes has joined the Family Medicine Department at the Essentia Health-West Duluth Clinic in Duluth, Minnesota.

“I chose Essentia Health because it has the most advanced electronic medical record (EMR) system in the area and offers an abundance of services and specialties to patients,” explains Markes.

Markes earned a master’s degree in physician assistant studies from St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa. She is certified as a physician assistant by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

“I have always wanted to be in family medicine. At Essentia, I have the opportunity to care for a variety of patients and have the ability to build relationships with them and their families,” says Markes. “I think it’s important to be able to tie in preventative medicine with patient’s current medical diagnoses, which is especially emphasized in family medicine.”
