Marcel Knotek, PA-C
National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants
My general philosophy in life is to focus my energies to promote a purposeful way of life. I have been involved in social issues for a long time.
The individual has been my focus in life and as a physician assistant (PA-C). Working with urologic oncology patients, I can continue my focus on the individual patient. The recovery from surgery, even though it has general features, is quite unique for each patient. I enjoy the challenge of developing the most beneficial plan with our patients and our urology staff.
While human suffering is unavoidable in this life, as a physician assistant, my purpose is to alleviate that suffering where we can. Working at Fox Chase provides me the opportunity to fulfill my mission in life and help those in need.
