"The best way patients can help us help them is to let us know exactly what is going on with them - tell us all your symptoms."
Candace Wixson-Johnson is a certified physician assistant who specializes in treating ear, nose and throat disorders. A member of MidMichigan Physicians Group, she sees and treats patients in Mt. Pleasant with Otolaryngologist Joe Chomchai, M.D.
Originally from Farwell, Candace lives and works in Mt. Pleasant. She believes her life experiences have helped shape and enhance her skills as a P.A. She worked in dentistry, law enforcement and academia before returning to school to become a physician assistant.
Candace believes giving to others is a good way to improve physical and mental health. She gives back to her community and neighbors through volunteer work – a role she is committed to maintaining. Over the years, Candace has offered her time and talent to a variety of organizations, including the American Cancer Society, Toys for Tots, Hospice, and the Miss America Organization, to name a few.
“I’ve volunteered with the American Cancer Society for years,” Candace said. “My first experience with Relay for Life really touched me. It was inspiring watching cancer survivors participate in the Relay. That experience is just one reason I decided to become a physician assistant.”
Philosophy of Care
“As a physician assistant, my goal is to work alongside the doctors, in a collaborative manner, to provide the best ear, nose and throat care for each individual patient,” she said.
Candace believes good communication is an essential first step for obtaining the most effective care. “The best way patients can help us help them is to let us know exactly what is going on with them – tell us all your symptoms,” she said. “I’m always willing to listen because I enjoy getting to know my patients as individuals, not just patients.”
These are the insurance plans in which this individual is a "participating provider".
This provider may accept other insurance, but your costs may be higher if they do not "participate" in your plan.
