Certified Physicians Assistant

Meet Rebecca

Rebecca Kenderes, PA-C is accepting new patients at The Wright Center for Community Health South Franklin Street Practice. As a physician’s assistant, she works alongside doctors to diagnose and treat a variety of specialties. “Along with sick appointments and preventative/wellness care, we do a variety of screenings and testing, including EKGs,” she says. “We can also do women’s wellness care, including screenings, pregnancy tests and preventive PAP exams within a family practice office like ours. If there’s anything we need to refer out to a specialist, we will, but anything we can accomplish here, we’ll get done.” She is passionate about encouraging patients to become active partners in their healthcare, with the goals of preventing illness and making sure patients are consistently connected with healthcare throughout all stages of their lives. A bilingual provider, Rebecca speaks both English and Spanish fluently.

Rebecca received her Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Language with a minor in Nutrition and Dietetics from Marywood University and her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Marywood as well. In 2019, Rebecca completed a 12-month Primary Care Transformation Executive Fellowship from A.T. Still University School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona (ATSU-SOMA), where her research focused on leveraging pediatric clinic visits to improve access to primary care in adult family members/caregivers. Says Rebecca of the opportunity, “By transforming how we provide primary care, we can improve health outcomes for patients and communities over time. The goals of the fellowship align perfectly with the goals of my community health center, as well as my personal goals as a provider.”

Originally from the Poconos, Rebecca worked for three years in upstate New York but says, “From the day I left I wanted to come back.” Her favorite thing about living Northeastern Pennsylvania again, apart from the changing of the seasons, is, “being able to return to the area I grew up in to provide an important service.” Click here to learn about our Wilkes-Barre location
