Patricia "Trish" Lien, PA-C
Physician Assistant in Urgent Care
Trish Lien, PA-C, is a physician assistant running the Orthopedic and Nuero/Spine Urgent Care at MD West ONE, formerly Methodist Orthopedics. She completed her physician assistant training at Midwestern University - Downers Grove.
Trish was drawn to medicine initially because she watched her mother get so much joy and satisfaction from her 40 plus years of nursing. She ultimately decided to become a PA to have a more independent, hands-on patient care experience. Trish was drawn to Orthopedics because there is a good mix of clinical work, as well as hands-on procedural work. Running the MD West ONE Urgent Care gives her the opportunity to be the front line to evaluate and treat patient's acute injuries or pain.
Outside of work, Trish loves spending time with her husband, daughter, and dog. They enjoy outdoor activities like biking, playing tennis, and taking long walks. She also enjoys watching or going to sporting events, cooking, and wine/beer/food tasting in her free time.
