  • Physician Assistant


“Since I was a child I have enjoyed making people smile and laugh. As a physician assistant I really enjoy helping people live better through medicine and laughter.”

My biggest responsibility as a health care professional is to educate my patients. I believe that informed people make better decisions regarding their health and wellness. I am always willing to take the time to explain what is going on and to answer any questions my patients have. I believe that working together and forming a collaborative plan improves patient outcomes and satisfaction.

Zachary has served his community as a Paramedic in the Matanuska Susitna borough for 6 years. Afterwards he had the privilege of serving Alaska residents across the state as a Critical Care Flight Paramedic. Wanting to expand his ability to help treat patients and make more lasting improvements to people’s lives, he attended the University of Washington’s Physician Assistant program. After working as a physician assistant for two years in orthopedic surgery, he is delighted to bring his passion for health, wellness, and humor to Alaska Medical Specialties.

Zachary is a native of Alaska and was born in Palmer. His adventures have taken him to Fairbanks and now to Anchorage where he enjoys the wonderful access to the outdoors. He is a father of three beautiful girls. You can find him on the trails of Kincaid Park any time of year running, biking or skiing.
