Whitney Arnold, PA-C
Whitney Rector, PA-C, cares for patients of all ages at Lake Regional Express Care in Eldon and Osage Beach.
As a physician assistant, Rector has advanced education and clinical training and can provide preventive and acute health services for patients of all ages.
“I love building relationships with my patients and could not imagine being in a career other than health care,” Rector said. “Engaging my patients in their own care is a very important aspect of my job. I like to discuss all options with them, such as medication choices, lifestyle changes and testing, and I always ask if patients have any questions about their diagnosis, test results or treatment plan.”
Rector became interested in working at Lake Regional while completing a clinical rotation in emergency medicine at the hospital for physician assistant school.
“It became apparent during my rotation that the Lake Regional Emergency Department, as well as all other departments, was filled with knowledgeable, caring and compassionate staff,” she said. “Every provider, nurse and tech was willing to share their knowledge and make me feel at home. I learned through my previous experience that it takes a team working together to provide quality health care to patients, and I am excited to work with a variety of excellent specialists.”
