In his free time, Dr. Werwath enjoys spending time with family on the boat, playing with his 6 amazing grandchildren, and eating his favorite food, shrimp!
Kelsey Sayre, MPA, PA-C
Another former scribe, Kelsey returned to The Doctor's In this summer after graduating from Campbell's PA Program in July 2020. Kelsey is currently out on maternity leave following the birth of her second daughter this summer.
Our office operates on a scribe system, in which we employ highly-qualified, enthusiastic college graduates. These scribes are the backbone of the clinic, as they assist all of our providers with medical documentation, lab draws, and patient intake. Over the last 20 years, 13 of our scribes have gone on to multiple programs, including nursing, medical, and PA school. Our current scribe staff includes Lillie, Alyssa, Hanna, and Garland (not pictured).
Advanced practice providers have become increasingly more prevalent in healthcare as the demand for providers continues to grow. Learn more about the differences between our providers by reading below.
Nurse Practitioners are registered nurses who have a master's-level education, certification, state licensure, and prescriptive authority. Their training is based in the nursing model of healthcare, emphasizing evidence-based patient-centered care. NP's generally have a more specific concentration in their training. In some states, NP's are able to practice independently of a physician.

Know Your Providers!
Physician Assistant (PA)
Physician Assistants also have a master's-level education rooted in the medical model of education, similar to the training undergone by MD's. PA's work collaboratively with physicians to provide exceptional patient care. PA's also hold prescriptive authority as well as national certifications and state licensure. PA's tend to have a more generalized education and specialize in their scope of practice upon graduation.
All of our providers are extremely well-qualified and are more than happy to see you for any of your medical needs. Our office could not function at its current level without their expertise and dedication to patient care.
