Elena Puig, PA-C, MSPAS

I have always known I wanted to help others through medicine and have been working in the medical field for 11 years.  After beginning my career by spending four years as an Emergency Medical Technician in a busy inner city ER in Washington, DC, I pursued and completed my Physician’s Assistant degree from South University in Tampa in 2013. I then specialized in Neurosurgery in a Level 1 Trauma Center in DC.  While working there, I gained expertise in Neurocritical Care and worked with Neurological patients with a large variety of surgical and non-surgical issues.  After 5 years of working as a Surgical Physician’s Assistant in DC, I moved to Minnesota to join the Minneapolis Clinic of Neurology in September of 2018.  I now work closely with Dr. Zubkov treating General Neurology patients, Stroke patients, and patients with Vascular Neurological issues.  We take care of all our patients through a holistic approach and treat disease through a variety of methods with strong consideration given to lifestyle and nutrition improvements.
