“There is a level of humanity we can offer that impacts how people feel about their treatment. I want patients to know I’m part of their treatment family and a partner on their journey.”
Marisa Gholson is a Physician Assistant specializing in gynecologic oncology and pelvic surgery. Her approach to care is informed by her personal experience growing up with a father living with a rare autoimmune disorder. Her goal is to listen, help patients and their families understand their diagnosis and treatment, and provide them information and support to make informed decisions about their care. She is dedicated to ensuring quality care and making sure her patients have access to the many resources the team offers. In addition to her work in the clinic, Marisa assists in surgeries.
In her spare time, she enjoys yoga, salsa dancing, traveling and playing with her three little rescue dogs.
