Beth Talent, PA-C
Certified physician assistant Beth Talent knew the medical field was her destiny since college. "During undergraduate school, I really wanted to be a doctor," Beth shared. "As classes went on, though, I realized I wanted to start helping people sooner than later, and I didn't want to be in school into my 30s.
"Becoming a physician assistant was the perfect opportunity to begin practicing medicine sooner," she continued. "I fell in love with surgery during my clinicals, so Novant Health Salem Surgical Associates was a perfect fit as well."
Beth sees patients with a wide variety of surgical needs. "I particularly enjoy bowel cases, and thyroid and breast surgery," she said.
Away from the office, family keeps Beth busy. "I am married to my high school sweetheart," she shared. "We have two sons and a daughter. We enjoy going to the beach, hiking and cooking together. And when I have time to myself, I enjoy gardening, sewing and monogramming."
