Kristen Giordano, PA, practices orthopedic spine care with Dr. Zee Khan and has worked in the health care industry since 2008. “I’ve always loved medicine,” she says. “I played soccer when I was younger and had a few knee injuries. That sparked my interest in orthopedics.”
“Back pain is a major cause of disability in our country,” she continues, “and being mobile and active can help prevent a variety of health problems – not only musculoskeletal injuries, but cardiovascular disease and diabetes as well. I enjoy helping my patients get mobile again as that allows them to improve their overall health.” Patient comments about her include:
"Kristen consulted me today on pain in the lower back and numbness. She gave me a clear description of the procession of pinched nerves. Her communication skills are A+. She is an asset to Utica Park Clinic. I would recommend her for orthopedic problems."
"Kristen is awesome! I talked to her before and after my spine surgery and she explained everything I needed to know. She carefully answered our many questions regarding everything from the effects of surgery to the recovery process. Very nice PA!"
Prior to joining Utica Park Clinic, Kristen cared for patients in Broken Arrow and Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
Kristen earned her Bachelor of Science degree in medical studies at DeSales University in Center Valley, Pennsylvania in 2013. She remained at DeSales to complete her Master of Science degree in physician assistant studies in 2014. She is a fellow member of the Oklahoma Academy of Physician Assistants and American Academy of Physician Assistants.
Kristen’s personal interests include reading, traveling and spending time with her family and Siberian Husky, Rocky.
