Physician assistant joins Pentwater medical practice. 

PENTWATER — Physician assistant Jordan Maccoux has joined the Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital Family Medicine practice in Pentwater, where he will begin seeing both existing and new patients in November. Maccoux will work in consultation with Dr. Allan Nelson.

While studying for his degree in physician assistant studies at Central Michigan University, Maccoux gained experience throughout northern Michigan. His clinical rotations included family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine, psychology, emergency medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, and surgery.

“Jordan brings excellent qualifications to our office,” said practice manager Alissa Edgcomb. “He has outstanding communication and leadership skills to supplement his medical knowledge and will be a distinct asset to our patients and our practice.”

The leadership skill referred to by Edgcomb is evident from his selection as team captain of the varsity football team at Saginaw Valley State University, where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree, majoring in health sciences.

Why did he choose family medicine and to begin his career in the Pentwater/Ludington area?

“Throughout my education I was drawn to the varied challenges of family medicine,” he said. “Specifically, I believe working with such an experienced and respected physician as Dr. Nelson will enhance my own professional development.”

Maccoux grew up in a small Upper Peninsula town on the north shore of Lake Michigan, and was looking for a professional opportunity that would keep him near the big lake and allow him to pursue his interest in all types of outdoor activities.

“A physician assistant is an integral part of a family medicine team, where collaboration leads to good patient outcomes,” he added. “I look forward to contributing what I’ve learned to helping our patients.”

In addition to his physician assistant degree, Maccoux has earned three life support certifications—basic, advanced cardiovascular, and pediatric, as well as a certification in critical care support.
