Woltz has an impressive resume, serving over 22 years as Emergency Department Physician Assistant at the Westfield Memorial Hospital. For 12 of those years, Woltz was also the Emergency Department Assistant Director under the supervision of Stephenson, who served as ER Director during that time.
As well as his vast experience at the Westfield Hospital, Woltz has also served at the Chautauqua County Health Department Family Planning Clinic, the Chautauqua County Home and in two local family physician offices on a per diem basis. Woltz trained and worked in Philadelphia, receiving his Physician Assistant’s Bachelor of Science degree and later a Master of Physician Assistant Studies degree. His early years included a five-year term as a U.S. Navy Corpsman. Woltz and his wife, Dariel, live in Westfield where they own and operate Studio at Panterra, a yoga and wellness center.
An excellent diagnostician and compassionate human being, Woltz is able to view each patient’s individual needs in a caring, holistic manner. He will be superb addition to the small, family-oriented practice that Stephenson has developed in Ripley. Stephenson and his staff welcome Woltz enthusiastically.
As always, Stephenson accepts new obstetrical patients with a family-oriented approach to maternity care. Stephenson follows pregnancies through delivery at Brook Memorial Hospital and care for new babies from the moment of arrival. The advantage of such an approach to obstetrical care with the convenance of a local physician has proven valuable to many patients.
The practice also announced that it will now be open for new patients with other needs as well. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Stephenson or Woltz, call 736-6300.
