Tiffany K. Dietz chose to become a physician assistant because she has been committed to helping others throughout her professional career.
“In this field, I am afforded the opportunity to collaborate with patients and help them regain control of their lives by improving their quality of life and functionality,” she said.
Dietz joined the National Spine & Pain Centers’ Alexandria office in 2018. She aims to ensure that every patient experience is personal and specialized to best suit and balance their needs, values and desire to regain abilities.
Dietz served in the United States Navy from 2004 to 2010 earning the rank Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Petty Officer. She served on the USS Wasp (LHD-1) out of Norfolk, VA as a member of the emergency response team for shipboard and in-port emergencies. While stationed in Kuwait, she was a Casualty Receiving and Acute Care Corpsman from 2006 to 2007. Dietz also earned the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for Hurricane Katrina relief efforts and duties while assigned to the Naval Branch Health Clinic Mid-South in Tennessee.
After her time in the Navy, Dietz graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Old Dominion University in 2013 and a Master of Science in physician assistant studies in 2017. Dietz is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.
Dietz believes strongly in open and clear communication in the patient-provider relationship in an effort to better understand goals and expectations. “When they entrust me to be their provider, together we become part of a health care team and the patient is the most valuable member.”
