Celebrating Our Physician Assistant, Johana Larios

Meet Johana Larios, one of our amazingly talented PAs who specializes in pain management. She joined our VSI team in 2013 and we are thrilled she's with us!

She shares, "As generic as it sounds, I wanted to become a PA to help people. I have always had a heart for others and care about their well being and quality of life. Seeing people struggle emotionally or physically is upsetting, and I wanted to do my part to help. That is probably the most rewarding part of my job, seeing patients achieve their full potential and improve their lives both emotionally and physically. It is also rewarding to have patients trust you with their fears, dreams and concerns and to put their trust in you; its such a vulnerable place to be for them, and so humbling to know that they trust you."

Fun Facts

Johana loves traveling and is a self proclaimed foodie! In her spare time she enjoys trying something new, whether that is a dance class, new restaurant, or learning a new language. She loves to explore new places and travel - see her featured on her exciting journeys outside of VSI!
