Kevin Yim Joins LaSalle Medical Hesperia Clinic
(Hesperia, Calif.) “Delivering patient care with courtesy and respect is the goal for LaSalle Medical Associates. In our journey to provide patients with quality care, LaSalle is happy welcome Kevin Yim as our new Physician Assistant,” said Dr. Albert A. Arteaga, founder and president of LaSalle Medical Associates.
“We are all very excited to have Kevin as part of the LaSalle family,” said Dr.. Arteaga. “He is a great addition to the Hesperia clinic, providing care with respect and compassion to all our patients.”
Kevin joins the LaSalle’s clinic located at 16455 Main St. in Hesperia. Among his duties, he conducts physical exams in order to diagnose and treat patients.
“I always wanted to treat patients like a doctor,” said Kevin. “Like most people, I thought that the only option or way to do it was to go to medical school and become a doctor. While earning my undergraduate degree at UC Irvine, I learned that as a physician assistant, I could treat patients, much like a doctor does. It seemed like a good fit.”
Physician assistants (referred to as PA’s) are people who practice medicine under the supervision of a licensed doctor. In many ways, they are similar to doctors. They have many of the same responsibilities, and perform many of the same tasks. Much like doctors a physician assistant works in a general family practice, or may specialize in a specific area of medicine, such as obstetrics, cardiology or orthopedics.
After receiving his Bachelor’s degree in Biology form UC Irvine, Kevin continued his journey, as he was accepted to the Physician Assistant program at Western University in Pomona. Upon obtaining his degree, he began working as a PA for an urgent care clinic in Claremont, Calif.
While he enjoyed working in urgent care, his passion for pediatric care remained in his heart. Fortunately, he saw an opening with LaSalle for a pediatric physician assistant.
“LaSalle is just the type of place I want to be,” said Kevin. “While we provide care for both children and adults, my focus is just on pediatric care.”
Kevin stresses the need for a proper diet, immunizations and consistency in annual check ups as essential elements in the preventive care he now provides his patients.
