Kayce Kirk, PA-C, is a certified physician assistant who cares for patients of all ages at UT Health East Texas Physicians in Carthage. Raised in a small town, she enjoys a friendly, rural setting. "Everybody knows everybody. You not only know them, you know their family, their children and their story. That's what I've always enjoyed about living and practicing medicine in a small town."
She draws on her experiences as a physician assistant to determine the best treatment for her patients. "Medicine is all about getting clues and solving the puzzle. I take the time to get down to the source of what's going on. I don't rush anyone out of the room, and I answer questions to the best of my ability. If I don't know the answer, I'll find it."
