Shannon Neer, PA-C
Specialty: Family Medicine
Education: Arizona School of Health Sciences, Phoenix
I grew up in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia where my dad was the head of the newly forming Medical Physics facility at the brand new King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center. Back then Riyadh was still quite underdeveloped-routine medical care and advanced health services were nonexistent for most of the population. Almost overnight (nine years, actually) I witnessed a tiny city with several mud buildings, diseased children and one stop light turn into a big city with modern streets and grocery stores.
One of the first CT scanners ever made was installed in my dad's facility. I always wanted to practice medicine, and in my senior year of college I learned the Physician Assistant profession is based on a model of rural medicine and taking care of underserved populations. That was an instant no brainer for me! Yakima is not exactly rural but it is small and access to care is indeed an issue.
After moving back from Saudi Arabia my family moved to Washington State. I graduated from Western Washington University in Bellingham. I then attended Arizona School of Health Sciences, in Phoenix, where I earned a Master's degree in Physician Assistant Studies.
My husband and I live in Ellensburg. We have two precious and spoiled little girls- a miniature Yorkie and a teacup Chihuahua. When I'm not at work, I enjoy arts and crafts, baking and raising money for the American Cancer Society. Almost every day when I am practicing medicine I am reaffirmed that I made the right career choice. Because I don't follow patients in the hospital or take call I feel like I can spend more time with each patient. In keeping with the principles of rural medicine I make sure to address the whole patient. This includes their home life, work life, and their available resources. I always make sure that the medications and treatment plans that I give to a patient will actually work for them considering their circumstances.
I like patients of all ages but I decorate my rooms for the children-I like them better! I like to goof off with them and I am typically the loudest one making animal noises and being silly! Who said I have to grow up?

Kathleen Tucholke, ARNP
Phil Young, ARNP
Education: Master's of Nursing, Washington State University, 2008; Bachelor of Science in Nursing, 2001.
Certification: Certified Family Nurse Practitioner
Mr. Young worked at Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital for 12 years, before leaving to pursue other opportunities, and returned to Memorial Family of Services because he appreciates the sense of community that Memorial and the Yakima Valley provide.
His philosophy of care is simple: He tries to put himself in his patient's shoes. Mr. Young strives to make medicine understandable for patients and believes that if his patients understand the reasoning behind the treatment plan, they are much more likely to follow that plan. He chose medicine as a career because he wanted to help people and has found it rewarding.
Mr. Young and his wife have four children, and they spend a lot of time playing, coaching and watching baseball. He also has traveled for medical mission work in Honduras, Ecuador and the Dominican Republic and is fluent in conversational Spanish.
