Mark Mechak, PA-CPhysician Assistant
“I became interested in family medicine because of the unique ability to treat patients throughout their lifespan. I believe that forming lasting relationships with patients is essential in giving patients the tools to live the healthiest and happiest life they can. I have a particular interest in the management of chronic diseases and geriatric medicine.”

I enjoy spending time in the outdoors hiking, biking, running, and playing ultimate frisbee. I am also a big sports fan, especially of the professional sports teams in the Washington D.C. area.
I grew up in Rockville, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C, and lived there throughout my entire K-12 education. After graduating from high school, I attended Roanoke college; a small liberal arts college in the beautiful Roanoke Valley of south western Virginia. After graduating from Roanoke, I worked as a nursing assistant on an intensive care unit at Roanoke Memorial Hospital. I then moved to Winchester, Virginia, where I started in the Shenandoah University Physician Assistant program in July of 2016. I graduated from Shenandoah in December of 2018 and now live in Fairfax, Virginia.
