Casey Dorame

Physician Assistant

Casey was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. She received a Bachelors’s degree in Biology at Arizona State University and attended Midwestern University to complete her Physician Assistant education. She has worked in physical medicine since 2015 and believes in providing alternative, safe, and effective treatments for musculoskeletal pain that address the underlying condition causing the pain rather than treating the symptoms. Her favorite aspect of working in physical medicine is witnessing patients getting their lives back. There is nothing more rewarding than helping others and she feels blessed to be part of a patient’s healing process.

When she isn’t working, Casey enjoys date nights with her husband, playing dress-up with her two daughters, attending Catholic mass on Sundays, a good cup of coffee, spending time with her family and friends, country music, and Sun Devil football.
