Yelena Goldshteyn is a certified physician assistant in National Spine & Pain Center’s Fairfax and Washington D.C. offices. She has experience in working with multi-cultural patients in a variety of locations, including hospitals and office settings.
“During my time as an emergency medicine physician assistant, I treated many patients who were dealing with acute pain,” she said. “I believe that experience helps me better understand the needs of patients who deal with excruciating pain on an on-going basis, especially as it relates to my efforts to address long-term medical management of chronic pain.”
Treating the often debilitating effects of pain on the aging population is especially important to Goldshteyn, who has extensive experience working with the elderly as an in-home care provider. “I truly empathize with them and understand what these patients go through on a daily basis,” she said. “I want to be able to help them—and all my patients—control their pain so that they can improve their quality of life.”
A native of the Ukraine, Goldshteyn grew up in Michigan and holds a bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Michigan. She earned her master’s degree in physician assistant studies from Pace University and Lenox Hill Hospital in New York, N.Y. She is board certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) and is licensed as a physician assistant in Virginia, the District of Columbia and New York.
In her free time, Goldshteyn enjoys playing tennis, kayaking, traveling and exploring new neighborhoods and restaurants. She is fluent in Russian.
