Elisa Rea, PA-C

Elisa considers it a privilege to walk alongside people as their primary care provider. She aims to provide a safe space where patients feel comfortable when run down by illness, facing uncertainty, or needing their routine problems managed in a compassionate way. She is a fierce advocate for her patients and enjoys empowering people to take charge of their own health care.

Elisa has been passionate about Primary Care ever since she can remember.  She began her career as a three year old helping her father out in the lab at his Family Practice in Pennsylvania. She then went on to earn her Master of Physician Assistant Studies at Samuel Merritt University in 2011. She is thrilled to be part of the team at Diablo Family Physicians.

When not at work, she can be found helping out with college students at her church, gardening, chasing her two young boys, or trying to go on a date with her husband.
