Amanda Jones is a board-certified Physician Assistant who completed her Master’s degree at Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona. Upon graduating, Amanda practiced orthopedics in Northern Arizona working in total joint surgery, fracture care and sports medicine.

Amanda is thrilled to be able to continue to provide quality orthopedic care and assist patients with reaching their healthcare goals. Aside from professional pursuits, she is also deeply passionate about health, fitness and getting outdoors.
