Kim Sargent, PA-C is a physician assistant at Northern Arizona Orthopaedics. She has a special interest in Spine and Hand care.
Kimberly grew up in Oregon where she attended the University of Oregon (Go Ducks!). She received her Bachelor of Fine Art specializing in Fibers. She became a seamstress and worked for a top independent company that created climbing equipment and backpacks. Although it was a fun profession, she felt pursuing a career that would allow her to help others and make a difference, would be more fulfilling. This led Kim to volunteer at a local women’s health care center, where she learned to be a medical assistant. At Northern Arizona University, in Flagstaff, she took science pre-requisites to apply for PA school. Kim was accepted and attended Idaho State University, where she graduated as a Physician Assistant in 2001. Over the course of 17 years, Kim has practiced as a PA-C in Family Practice and Cardiology, but settled in Orthopaedics, due to her love of sports and exercise. She has worked in Sports Medicine, Spine, and Hand. When she is not working, she can be found enjoying time with her family, playing roller derby, mountain biking, or lifting weights.
Kim’s years of orthopaedic experience and her genuine compassion for others reflect in the way patients feel when they receive her care. It’s these positive patient experiences and Kim’s expert medical skill, that bolster the trust the NAO physicians and their patients place in her.
