Mary Lombardi, PA-C

Cosmetic Specialist
Creekside Office: Monday, Thursday and Friday 

Mary, a native New Yorker, is a graduate of the PA program of Cornell University Medical College, and has been an active PA for almost 40 years. She moved to central Florida 3 years ago, but misses her favorite NYC restaurants, and walking through Central Park. She spent 12 years prior to moving here working with a world-renowned plastic surgeon, where she learned about evaluating facial contours. She did injectables and cosmetic lasers, in addition to assisting in surgery and supervising the pre- and post-operative care of patients. She is an avid reader (particularly detective stores and thrillers) and in her off-time, has been exploring the beauty of Florida's lakes and local flora and fauna. She gets tremendous satisfaction from making a client happy about their appearance.

What is a Physician Assistant?

A Physician Assistant (PA) is a healthcare provider who diagnosis and treats a wide variety of conditions, including cosmetic procedures. Physician Assistants receive their training through the College of Medicine Physician Assistant Program at colleges and universities across the United States. Physician Assistants are part of the healthcare team and required by state law to have a supervising physician.  Many PAs work independently within the dermatology office much like a staff dermatologist seeing a wide range of medical, surgical and cosmetic patients, but always under physician supervision.  PAs also hold a prescribing license and are able to write prescriptions under the guidelines of the state they are licensed.
