Terry J. Kay, P.A.-C.

Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners are an integral part of our team to help offer you effective and timely medical care.

I focus on providing quality and professional orthopedic, sports medicine, and preventative health care services to all of my patients. Working with our team of orthopedic surgeons, I take medical histories, examine patients, order and interpret laboratory tests and X-rays, and diagnose patients both in the clinical and hospital setting. I also treat injuries and assist in orthopedic surgeries.

As a Physician Assistant I actively help fulfill Heartland Orthopedic Specialists’ goal, which is to return our patients to an active lifestyle in the shortest time possible.

I am originally from Cambridge, Minnesota, and moved to the Alexandria area with my family in 1999. I worked in orthopedic surgery in North Carolina while my husband was serving in the military. As an avid outdoors person, Alexandria has given me a great opportunity to enjoy the lakes and other outdoor activities.
