Lauren Riley, PA-C

“It is truly an honor to return home to serve the vibrant community that raised me.  There is no place like Kaua`i and I am excited to return home with the knowledge and skills that I have cultivated throughout my training on the mainland.  As a Physician Assistant, I enjoy being a part of a healthcare team that emphasizes collaboration and works to increase access to healthcare.  With compassion and evidence-based medicine, I strive to provide high-quality and individualized care to each patient with ALOHA.”
