Lindsay Florek, PA-C

Lindsay Florek brings her experience as a physician assistant in emergency settings to a new position staffing the Urgent Care Center at Tanner Clinic’s Kaysville clinic.

Lindsay is available for walk-in patients who need treatment more immediately than a doctor’s appointment could provide. She sees a wide spectrum of injuries and illnesses, such as lacerations, broken bones, sore throats, rashes and fevers.

The certified physician assistant comes to Tanner Clinic after working as a PA-C in the busy emergency room of the George Washington University Hospital in inner Washington, D.C.

Lindsay, a native of Layton, earned her B.S. from Weber State University, majoring in athletic therapy/scientific track. After graduating magna cum laude, she transferred to the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. There she completed master’s degree in the physician assistant program.

In addition to the George Washington University Hospital, Lindsay has worked in the emergency departments of Prince George’s Hospital Center in Cheverly, Md., and the Arlington Urgent Care Center in Arlington, Va. While a student at WSU, Lindsay worked as a CNA at LDS Hospital, Salt Lake City, and McKay-Dee Medical Center in Ogden, Utah.

A graduate of Northridge High School in Layton, Lindsay is pleased to return to Utah’s mountains and outdoors where she enjoys skiing, hiking and bicycling. She’s also a fan of yoga, gym workouts and spending time with her family.
