ALBION – Lovejoy Health Center is pleased to welcome Courtney Marcotte, PA
to the medical team this fall. She recently obtained a Master of Science degree in Physician Assistant Studies at Marywood University in Scranton, PA. Previously, she completed an undergraduate degree in Biology at State University of New York at Potsdam and obtained a certificate in Practical Nursing at North Country Community College in Ticonderoga, NY. Her areas of clinical interest include family medicine and preventive medicine.
Courtney recently stated: “I chose Lovejoy because of their holistic approach to treating the very young to the very old and their great team dynamic. I believe an essential part of medicine is developing relationships with your patients, and family practice medicine really allows you to do that. I also strongly believe in treating individuals, not illnesses.”
At the health center, Courtney will work alongside physicians Dean Chamberlain and Forrest West, physician assistants Kathryn Dempsey and Gretchen Morrow, and clinical social worker Deborah Daigle. In addition, Bert E. Mason offers foot care and Marta Hall provides psychiatric medication management to patients.
