Derek Bronson, PA-C

Mr. Bronson serves as our physician assistant. He was born and raised in California; he served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Italy where he met his wife. He and his wife attended school together at the University of New Mexico. He received dual Bachelor’s degrees in biology and psychology from UNM. After this, he and his wife took turns putting each other through graduate school. Mr. Bronson worked as a high school biology teacher to put his wife through her graduate program as a speech-language pathologist. After she was done, they packed their bags for Idaho State University for his PA-C program.

From there, he was drawn to the four corners region by the prospect of outdoor opportunities, family ties, warmer weather, and doing what he loves—ENT. When not at work, Mr. Bronson enjoys spending time with his wife and five-year-old twin girls. When he has time, he pursues his hobbies—fishing, trap shooting, learning Spanish, and composing music. He looks forward to working with you to achieve greater health at the clinic.
