Madeline Lummis, PA-C
We at Summit Orthopedic Specialists want to extend a warm welcome to our newest provider, Madeline Lummis, PA-C! With her background as an athlete, Maddie naturally developed an interest in Sports Medicine and General Orthopedics. And these proved to be her primary drivers for pursuing a graduate program at PA school at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences University in Boston.
Post her graduation, Maddie was selected to become a member of the Phi Alpha Honors Society. She is also an active member of the California Association of Physician Assistants and the American Academy of Physician Assistants.
As a fully trained and formally certified PA, Maddie is 100% passionate about serving the orthopedic needs of patients in the Greater Sacramento Area. All of this coupled with her experience in Sports Medicine and General Orthopedics make her a great fit at Summit Orthopedic Specialists.
Prioritized Patient Care at Summit Orthopedic Specialists
Every single patient at Summit is our number one priority. In order to ensure that each one of them receives the care and treatment they deserve as quickly as possible, we have added Maddie to our team!
As a PA, Maddie is involved in every aspect of patient care and at every level under the direct supervision of our surgeons. She is fully involved in the postoperative care process for our patients as well.
Optimized Patient Scheduling!
With Maddie on the team, we have been able to effectively optimize our patient scheduling process. Freeing up of time has allowed our surgeons to take on a higher number of new patients who are in need of orthopedic attention quickly.
This will also mean that patients will be seen by the surgeons that they want to see. So, if a patient comes to us with an approved referral, we will schedule the first visit of such patients with the appropriate surgeon – normally within one week!
Referrals are necessary if you are on an HMO plan. It is important that all referrals come to us with the necessary information completed. We will work with your referring provider to gather this information if it does not come across completed properly the first time.
Referrals Fax: 916-965-4813
Scheduling an Appointment without a Referral
If you are in need of orthopedic care, and you are on a PPO or are a self-pay patient, then you do not need a referral to schedule a visit with one of our surgeons. You can simply call us at (916) 965-4000 or visit our website to seek an appointment and we will be more than happy to schedule a visit with the appropriate surgeon for your particular condition, normally within about one week!
