Jocelin Angeles, a Certified Physician Assistant, is the new Team Member of the Month for Pardee UNC Health Care.
Angeles is part of Pardee’s Vascular Surgery team and works directly with patients and clinicians to provide care ranging from taking a patient’s medical history and vital signs to assisting a provider during exams, according to a press release from Pardee.
Nominated by her fellow team members, Angeles is described as a hardworking team player who goes above and beyond for every patient, colleague and provider.
“She always makes patients feel like the most important person,” a colleague said. “With the complex care these patients require, she always treats everyone with dignity and compassion.”
Angeles is praised for always stepping in to offer help, even when it’s not required of her. When a co-worker was away for a long time, Angeles took it upon herself to help out with the extra responsibilities.
“Everyone feels the impact of his compassion, expertise and willingness to help,” her colleague said. Angeles also volunteered her time to coordinate an after-hours cartoid screening event during Stroke Awareness Month, which included organizing the schedule, calling in patients, and handling all other event details. “All our days are much better because Jocelin is part of our team. Pardee is lucky to have such an outstanding team member.
