Brittany Coleman is a certified physician assistant in National Spine & Pain Centers’ Frederick and Germantown, MD, offices where she works with Dr. Kristoffer De Lara and Dr. Anish Patel on patient consultations, pain medication management and pre- and post-procedure visits. She also performs interventional treatments including steroidal injections for the treatment of osteoarthritis of the shoulder, hip and knee.
Prior to joining NSPC, Coleman served as a physician assistant at several prestigious medical centers, including Duke Hospital in Raleigh, NC and Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania – Penn Medicine. She has extensive experience in sports-related orthopedic injuries, including tendinitis, rotator cuff injuries, shoulder dislocations and knee injuries.
“During my eight years of clinical experience with acute and chronic orthopedic injuries and illnesses, managing post-operative pain and treating athletes of all levels with sports-related injuries, I often referred patients to pain management specialists and anesthesiologists for treatment, so naturally I was drawn to this specialty,” she said.
Coleman earned a bachelor’s degree in health science from the University of the Sciences in Philadelphia before completing her master’s degree in medical science from Salus University in Elkins Park, PA. She is certified as a physician assistant by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.
“I believe every patient should have the ability to participate in their medical management and care,” she said. “I spend time with each patient to address all of their concerns and questions and present all of the treatment options that exist for them so they can choose what is best for their individual needs.”
In her free time, Coleman enjoys traveling to other countries and exploring different cultures. She also enjoys the outdoors, hiking, running, biking, working out and going to see live music at concerts and festivals.
