About Susan Jakubek, PA-C

Over the course of my career development, I earned my Master's of Physician Assistant Studies through University of Nebraska with a focus in Neurological Surgery.  Throughout my career, I have been afforded the opportunity  to manage departments, develop and manage schedules, and have been involved in strategical corporate planning. As the lead clinical core team member for implementation of an EMR system, one of my most obscure accomplishments had been form/template editing and document building. Within the constructs of the electronic health framework program, I customized the system to function in a more efficient manner.

I am a nationally certified physician assistant and hold a current Ohio license with an active DEA license. Recently, I obtained my MBA with a focus in Healthcare management.
