Kara Joice, PA-C, earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Kansas and her master’s degree from Wichita State University.

“I want my patients to be informed of the different treatments and options available to them and make sure they chose the decision that is right for them.”

Kara chose LMH Health because of the level of care and highly-qualified physicians who work for the hospital. Being a community hospital, she believes her patients will love the familial feel and care LMH Health provides.

She is a board-certified physician’s assistant and has been with LMH Health since 2009. Kara worked in the Emergency Department before joining the OrthoKansas team in 2020.

Philosophy Of Care

I want my patients to feel comfortable and allow me the opportunity to help them with their treatment and recovery. I want them to be informed about the options they have and make the decision that’s right for them.
