Meet Marissa Stevens, PA-C

Marissa Stevens is a board-certified Physician Assistant who is a native to Arizona and a graduate of Arizona Christian University. She received her bachelor’s degree in Biology and shortly after she completed her PA education and training at FranU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

She always knew she wanted to work in orthopedics even prior to beginning PA school. She became a PA to work closely with other providers in a team-oriented setting to provide patients with quality care and directly impact the well-being and health of each patient.

She is thrilled to be part of a team that provides quality orthopedic care to the residents of her hometown and excited to be able to offer state of the art treatments utilizing a patient centered approach. In her free time, she enjoys working out, fishing, hiking, and spending time with family and friends.
