Tammy Troutt, PA-C, is no newcomer to healthcare. With 18 years’ experience in family medicine and orthopedics, she takes pride in providing quality care to her patients.
She’s no stranger to northeast Indiana, either. Troutt grew up in the Bluffton area, and still has family there. Since 2007, she has practiced medicine as a physician assistant (PA) in the Fort Wayne area and, more recently, in Markle. Now, she is seeing patients at the Parkview Physicians Group (PPG) – Family Medicine office in Warren.
“We are so pleased that Tammy has joined PPG and will be working out of the Warren office,” said Doug Selig, market president, Parkview Health South. “She has a gift for building collaborative, long-term relationships with her patients. I’m confident the residents in this area will really appreciate her substantial experience, listening ear and commitment to partnering on their healthcare.”
Troutt completed her Bachelor of Science (Health Science Physician Assistant) degree at Butler University in Indianapolis.
She is a fellow member of the American Academy of Physician Assistants and the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.
As a physician assistant, Troutt provides all aspects of patient care, including:
• Performing physical exams
• Developing and implementing treatment plans
• Ordering and interpreting laboratory tests and diagnostic studies
• Performing in-office procedures such as lesion biopsies, joint injections and cryotherapy
• Treating common medical problems
• Managing chronic conditions such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and hypothyroidism
• Providing well-child exams, vaccinations and other pediatric care
• Supporting women’s health, from pap smears to osteoporosis treatment
• Evaluating and treating mental health conditions, including depression and anxiety
Troutt said medicine interested her from a young age, but it was a job shadowing experience with a physician assistant during high school that helped her decide to pursue medicine as a profession and become a PA in her own right. She has found that being a primary care provider suits her.
“I love working with people of all ages and backgrounds,” she said. “I am passionate about getting to know my patients as unique and complex individuals, not just as patients. My goal is to educate them about their health and make recommendations, so each person can then make informed decisions about their healthcare needs.”
Outside of work, Troutt loves to take vacation trips with her family. She also enjoys reading, snow skiing and spending quality time with her friends and family members.
Troutt is accepting new patients at her office, 470 Bennett Drive in Warren. Call (260) 375-3670 for appointment scheduling.
