Louann Berroa , PA-C has been practicing as a Physician Assistant since 1997. She graduated from the University of Texas Southwestern (UT-Southwestern) Medical Center. After graduation, she worked in family practice and then for an orthopedic surgeon in Texas.

Following that she moved to Denver and began working with the trauma service and sports service at Panorama Orthopedics for six years.

She then moved to a more challenging position at Denver Health where her exposure to all levels of patients, including children and those with limited access to healthcare, made her position rewarding and challenging.
