BRENT AMBLER

My name is Brent Ambler and I am Dr. Weber’s physician assistant (PA). I was born and raised in Anderson, IN. I began college at Indiana University, but transferred to Ball State University to double major in Athletic Training and Exercise Science/ Wellness. I graduated in 2001 and took a job at Jasper County Hospital, where I utilized both my degrees. I was director of fitness at the KV Health Centre and an athletic trainer at West Central High School. While I enjoyed this work, I quickly realized I wanted to do more with my life. That’s when I discovered and pursued a career as a PA.

In 2005, I attended PA school at a small school in Connecticut called Quinnipiac University. Their PA program is 27 months and offers a Master’s of Science degree. After completing PA school in 2007, I decided to return to Indiana to be closer to friends and family. PA school was an opportunity for me to further myself, but I quickly realized I still have a passion for orthopedics. This is why I’ve continued to work in orthopedics as a PA. I have been a PAsince 2008and have worked with Dr. Weber since 2010. I feel that we are a great team because we both enjoy taking care of people.

I was married in 2009 to my lovely wife Dawn, who is now a stay at home mother to our twins, named Madelyn and Brayden who were born in May 2011. My wife and I enjoy traveling and outdoor activities, like camping and hiking but most of our free time is spent taking care of the twins. It is an exhausting, amazing experience.

One of the most common questions I get is, “What is a physician assistant?” I’d like to take the time to answer that question. PAs are health professionals who practice medicine as members of a team with their supervising physicians. PAs deliver a broad range of medical and surgical services to all populations in any specialty of medicine. As part of our comprehensive responsibilities, we conduct physical exams, diagnose and treat illnesses, order and interpret tests, counsel on preventive health care, assist in surgery, and prescribe medications.
