Neal Burgess, PA-C, is a physician assistant at the UT Health East Texas Orthopedic Institute in Tyler. He believes in taking a team-based approach to healthcare. “One person cannot do everything alone. By using a team approach, we as healthcare providers, are able to improve patient outcomes across the board.
“I know it sounds cliché, but I really did get into healthcare to help people. It gives me great pleasure to see my patients improving and returning to their normal lives. I chose to focus on orthopedics because I try to live a very active lifestyle myself, so I understand the importance of helping my patients maintain an active lifestyle,” he said.
When not seeing patients, Neal enjoys spending time outdoors, jogging, carpentry, hunting and fishing.
