Family Medicine Providers Welcome New Patients in Midland
Board-certified Family Medicine Providers Amanda Spickerman, P.A.-C., and Taylor Waltz, P.A.-C., are welcoming new patients of all ages to Family Practice Center in the Gerstacker Building, located on the campus of MidMichigan Medical Center - Midland.
Amanda Spickerman, P.A.-C.
Spickerman earned her Master of Science degree in Medicine, Physician Assistant Studies, at Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo. She has a special clinical interest in all aspects of women’s health and aims to put women at their ease for what can often be a difficult and private conversation so that they feel comfortable asking questions.
“My goal is to always do what is best for the patient, all while taking their opinions into consideration,” said Spickerman. “I want my patients to feel like they are involved in the decision-making process for their own health needs. I really try to take the time to explain the details of the ‘why’ so that people understand the purpose of a treatment or care plan. Even in my own personal experiences, if I can know the reasoning to the why, then it gives a purpose to a task and I am therefore more likely to follow through. By doing this, as a team we can achieve those health goals.”
In her free time, Spickerman loves being outdoors, no matter the season. Her hobbies include camping in northern Michigan with her husband, Justin, and her yellow Labrador retriever, Hank, running, spending time with family and friends and photography.
Taylor Waltz, P.A.-C.
Waltz earned her Master of Science degree in the Physician Assistant Program at South College in Knoxville, Tennessee.
“I was drawn to a field of practice where I would be able to get to know my patients and assist them in general well-being as well as being available for any illness that may arise,” said Waltz. “The most satisfying aspect of my work is to grow with my patients and be able to see their long term positive results. It feels great to be able to be by their side on their journey to a happy and healthy life. I am thrilled to be able to provide care for all age groups.”
Waltz is excited to be returning to her hometown to practice medicine in a community that she knows and loves. During her spare time, she likes to golf, boat and travel around the beautiful state of Michigan.
“I also love spending time with family including my cat, Rory, and my Berenedoodles, Charlie and Sammie,” she said.
