Emily Nardiello, Physician Assistant Certified
Emily Nardiello’s journey to becoming a PA-C began with an interest in biomedical sciences. She chose dermatology because the field has such broad scope of conditions and she recognized how patient’s lives are affected by having skin problems. Emily feels that “Skin is the first thing you see on a person, conditions affecting the skin may not only be uncomfortable but almost always affects a person mentally and socially.Therefore for me, improving the skin can greatly enhance a person’s happiness in life”.
She also has her own personal reasons for her passion in dermatology, growing up in Florida with little education at the time about UV sun damage; she has seen the negative impact first hand. Educating patients of all ages on how to better protect their skin from sun damage is something she really enjoys.
Cosmetic dermatology is another exciting part of Emily’s scope of practice. She is passionate about how technology can be utilized to treat patients in a way that couldn’t be done in the past. Fraxel, V-Beam, skin tightening such as Ulthera are just a few of the services Emily will perform here at Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology of Issaquah.
Emily has been practicing dermatology for 2 years prior to joining Dr. Michalak. She attended Grand Valley State University and holds a Master of Science degree in Physician Assistant studies. Her affiliations are the Washington Academy of Physician Assistants (WAPA) and American Academy of Physician’s Assistants AAPA.
