If your visit to Tahoe Fracture includes care from a Physician Assistant or Nurse Practitioner, you can be confident that you are in good hands.

What is a physician assistant?

  • Physician Assistants (PAs) are licensed and certified health professionals with a graduate-level education (Master’s degree) who provide a wide variety of medical and surgical services under the supervision of a physician.

What is a nurse practitioner?

  • Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners (ARNPs or NPs) are medical professionals who receive graduate-level education (Masters or Doctorate) and provide comprehensive care in a broad range of medical services.

What is the difference between a PA or NP and a physician?

  • PAs and NPs are trained and qualified to diagnose and treat illnesses and injuries, take medical histories, conduct physical exams, order and interpret tests, assist in surgery, perform a variety of procedures and write prescriptions.
  • The PAs and NPs at Tahoe Fracture work in partnership with our physicians to help ensure that we provide our patients with efficient and effective care.

Can PA’s and NP’s prescribe medication?

  • In Nevada and California, PAs and NPs are authorized to write and sign some prescriptions without a physician co-signature.

What does the “C” in PA-C mean?

  • This means that the PA has passed the certification exam developed by the National Board of Medical Examiners and administered by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).
  • NP’s must also pass a national board certification in the area of their specialty.

Patient Reviews

See What Our Patients Have To Say

At Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic, we take the time to get to know each patient so that we can develop a customized treatment plan that’s tailored to his or her specific needs, lifestyle, and goals.

I truly wish I could give them more than just 5 stars!

"I couldn’t have asked for better care for my son than from the staff at Tahoe Fracture and Orthopedic. From the receptionist all the way up to the surgeon, we were treated with the utmost respect, kindness, patience, and care. They were not only quick to get him in for an examination, but were amazingly quick to fit him into the schedule to have his injury treated asap!! Thanks to them, my son is now on the road to recovery. I truly wish I could give them more than just five stars!"

Thanks Doc!

"Dr. Mike Fry is a wonderful doctor and caring person. When I saw him for the first time, he held my hand and said, “I’m going to make you well”, and he did! I had back surgery 2.5 years ago and still doing great. Thanks Doc!"

We were deeply impressed with the entire experience.

"We were deeply impressed with the entire experience. Candace should be commended for her work ethic. Also my experience with the x-ray tech was outstanding. I would not change anything."

Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent.

"My entire experience was just as good as I had planned…a great day! Dr. Fry and the entire staff were excellent. Thanks a lot!"

I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life.

"Dr. Jones and his staff through the surgical procedures and other methods they have performed over the years have enhanced my daily living experience dramatically. I am leading a more productive life without the daily pain I dealt with in the past. I cannot express how much of a difference this has made in my life."
