Amber Rhow, Physician Assistant

She chose family medicine and then she chose to come home.

Amber Rhow, MPAS, spent ten years as an X-ray technologist but wanted to do more. She wanted more interaction with patients which sent her to the University Medical Center Nebraska to become a Physician Assistant where she graduated with High Distinction. And then she chose Tri-County Family Medicine and that’s what got her closer to home.

“I love the sense of community here, you just can’t get that in a big city. The pride Dansville has is contagious. I enjoy being surrounded by the Tri-County team that truly cares about their patients.”

Amber chose family medicine because she wanted to establish long term relationships with her patients. Connecting with her family in the area is the bonus.

It’s safe to say Amber is comfortable in our small community. She likes seeing familiar faces when she goes out for her groceries. She also enjoys having an impact on people’s lives – explaining health options and allowing them to choose what’s best for their lifestyle.

Outside of work, Amber likes being with her big family who get together any chance they get. She enjoys the Finger Lakes area especially when hiking with her dogs.
