Brianna Thacker PA-C
Brianna Thacker, PA-C, is a primary care physician assistant at the medical office building adjacent to Methodist Women’s Hospital (192nd and Dodge Streets). She enjoys educating her patients in becoming more invested in their health and helping them tackle their unique health challenges.
“I enjoy working with my patients to get to the bottom of what’s concerning them,” Thacker said.
Her easy-going demeanor puts patients at ease, and she finds great value in establishing personal connections with each of them.
“My favorite moments are when I see lightbulbs go off in my patients’ heads,” she said. “When they understand their disease processes and why we’re treating it the way we are, it’s so satisfying. I love the confidence it brings them.”
She first considered becoming a primary care provider in seventh grade. Her science teacher suggested she’d do well in medicine.
“I thought, ‘How cool would that be?!’”
Having previously worked for Methodist as a lab assistant, Thacker saw how much the health system values patients and employees. She knew it was where she wanted to practice after graduating from the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s Physician Assistant Program.
Thacker enjoys spending her free time with friends and family, especially her husband and dog, Billy. She also enjoys running, reading and working on home improvement projects.
