Bethany Berg PA-C is pleased to be putting her medical training to work at the Fairbury Clinic PC.

Berg, who graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center as a PA in December, said Fairbury was a great fit for her for many reasons.

She knew she wanted to be involved in a Family Medicine clinic, and the Fairbury Clinic has four Family Medicine Board Certified physicians and two other PAs. When she visited, she liked the clinic, its operations and its physicians and staff. She could see that the physicians have faith in their PAs, and entrust them with their patients care.

Everyone has been great, Berg said.

Fairbury is also a good location to be close to both her family in the Lewiston area, and her husbands family in the Syracuse area.
