I'm Alithia Monroe-Broderick and I am a Physician Assistant licensed in Massachusetts and New York with National board certification.
I have a Masters Degree of Physician Assistant Studies at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in 2005, Bachelor Degree in Bio-Chemistry from University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 1998, a second Bachelor Degree in Health Science at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences in 2003.
I am a volunteer House Doctor for the Boston Symphony Orchestra and serve as a state medical board member for Massachusetts Physician Assistant Regulation and Licensing. I am an invited National Speaker for the Physician Assistant Organization and a member of the Newbury Street League.
I have worked in collaboration with physician luminaries for more than a decade including New Jersey and NY Dermatologist, David Goldberg MD JD, now retired Boston's beloved Plastic Surgeon Bill Adams MD and the New England Journal of Medicine Editor Lindsey Baden MD. From my cosmetic clinical work and co-investigator research experiences, I have learned the art of patient care and attendance as well how to tease apart medical literature to guide best patient decisions in cosmetic medicine.
