Mary Perez, PA-C, ATC

Mary Perez has been helping Alaskans get and stay healthy for over a decade. Many folks from Southcentral area high schools and athletic organizations will recognize Mary from her athletic training days. Perhaps she’s managed your concussion, put your shoulder back in place, or helped you rehabilitate from knee surgery.

Mary graduated Magna Cum Laude from Mars Hill University with a bachelor’s degree in athletic training and went on to earn two master’s degrees – Applied Nutrition with a concentration in Sports and Fitness Nutrition from Northeastern University and Clinical Health Studies from MEDEX Northwest Physician Assistant Program. 

Today as a physician assistant, she offers urgent care, family medicine, and nutrition education to all family members and individuals in the community.
