A Day in the Life of a Gastroenterology PA

How Alum Jeremy Bienenfeld Uses Skills Learned at Touro to Improve Quality of Life for His Patients

Did you know that over 60 million Americans suffer from gastrointestinal (GI) disorders annually? Luckily, there are people who have made it their life’s work to help patients dealing with health issues resulting from these debilitating diseases. Jeremy Bienenfeld, a newly-graduated PA from Touro’s School of Health Sciences (SHS) is one professional who is passionate about the GI field and empowering patients to live their best lives. We caught up with ’21 graduate Bienenfeld about his daily responsibilities as a PA at Digestive Disease Care in New Hyde Park, New York, and the vital skills he learned in the Touro classroom that he leverages daily to excel on the job.
