Internal Medicine Physician Assistant: Marie Evangelista, MHS, MPH, PA-C, RD


My name is Marie Evangelista. I really like preventive medicine and
keeping people healthy. And so more sort of the health
maintenance and disease prevention and you know keeping people healthy
with their chronic diseases. Rather than just being reactive to
when people come in and being sick but really trying to help people be
as healthy as they possibly can. I really like women’s health a lot and women’s health in
the primary care setting. I do a lot of contraception counseling and
weight management counseling. And helping people to control their high
blood pressure and high cholesterol and diabetes with diet and exercise rather than focusing completely
on prescribing medications all the time. I really do enjoy sort
of a younger population. But I like the geriatrics too. I just tend to have more preventative
medicine to do with younger patients. I grew up in a tiny little one stoplight
town in sort of Southwest North Carolina. It’s where my parents grew up and
their parents grew up. So I have a lot of ties to
the community here in North Carolina. And my whole family’s here,
and family’s important. So I just really like the community here. Well, I love to travel, so my husband and
I have traveled all over the world. And we just sort of try to make a big trip every other year to somewhere
we haven’t been before. And I just love seeing new cultures,
and seeing new things, and just exploring, and so,
that’s sort of my passion. I’m also passionate about my dogs. I have two little beagle mixes, and
they’re like my little fur babies. So, they’re our children.
