Theresa Macdissi PA-C
Theresa Macdissi is a pulmonary physician assistant at Methodist Physicians Clinic Council Bluffs. She completed her medical training at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.
Theresa became interested in medicine while watching her father, a volunteer paramedic, help those in need. She decided she, too, could give back by pursuing a medical career.
A passion for science drew Theresa to pulmonary care through medicine’s fundamental principles of hard work, inquisition, camaraderie and empathy.
She believes effective care begins with listening to patients’ concerns and encouraging them to be active in their own medical care.
“I’m inspired every day by Methodist’s core values,” she said. “Our providers focus on patient-centered care, respect, excellence and giving back to the community. It’s special to be a part of that.”
In her free time, Theresa enjoys reading and baking. She has two older brothers who are also in the medical field.
