MEET OUR PROVIDER - RYAN ROWAN
Ryan D. Rowan, PA-C, is a skilled Physician Associate specializing in primary care. At Temecula Medical Group in Temecula, California, he takes pleasure in connecting with patients, learning about their lives, and helping them achieve their health goals. He enjoys working with people from all walks of life, especially those of different cultures.
Ryan was born and raised in Dana Point and Mission Viejo, California. After earning his BA from Brigham Young University, he worked as a medical interpreter for Spanish-speaking patients and loved what he saw. He observed many clinicians and nurses compassionately caring for their patients and found such purpose in their daily efforts and satisfaction in their conversations.
Ryan then completed Drexel University’s Hahnemann Physician Assistant Program with a Master of Health Science in 2007. He scored in the 95% on the National Board Exam. Aside from all primary care skills and duties, Ryan is trained in Osteopathic Manipulation Technique of the spine.
Ryan has provided health care to underserved populations in two different Federally Qualified Health Centers. He spent a year and a half in Central California and five years in Idaho, four of which he served as lead clinician for a rural health clinic. Currently, Ryan is participating in a pilot test program to improve the recertification process for all Physician Assistants in the US by the National Commission for Certification of Physician Assistants.
He has been described as a true caregiver; his patients often leave appointments feeling lifted. In addition to English, Ryan also speaks fluent Spanish and Portuguese.
Outside of work, Ryan loves participating in sports with his four children, including football, soccer, basketball, and any sport with a board. He also enjoys the musical benefits of four accomplished musicians (his kids) in his home.
