Introduction

Jennifer (Jenna) Decker is a physician assistant who specializes in cardiothoracic and vascular surgery. She enjoys helping patients and tailors their care to their specific needs.

“Every patient is unique,” she says, adding that she treats each one “…as though they are my friend or family member.”

Jenna was inspired to pursue medicine by her mother, who was a nurse in the intensive care unit. Knowing that her mother was helping people recover from open heart surgery made a deep impression. Today, she helps patients with similar conditions.

“We see patients at their worst, and to be able to assist in helping them to feel better puts a smile on my face,” she says.

For Jenna, part of treating patients is making sure they understand their care. Her most important advice for patients is to ask questions. “Make sure you understand what your physician is explaining or medications they are prescribing,” she says.

When she’s not caring for patients, Jenna likes to spend time with her family, camping, four-wheeling, traveling, and crocheting.
