AUSTIN, Minn. — Diana Nelson, certified physician assistant, recently joined the Family Medicine Department at Mayo Clinic Health System in Austin.
“I enjoy family medicine because I am able to care for the whole family, even multi-generations sometimes,” says Nelson. “I get to know my patients over years and guide them through different stages of life.”
Nelson received her master in Physician Assistant Studies from the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska, and completed her degree while she was in the Air Force at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas. She completed residency training at Carswell Air Force Base, Texas. Nelson’s professional interests include geriatrics and women’s health.
Raised nearby in Hayfield, Nelson is thrilled to join Mayo Clinic Health System and the Austin community.
