Susan Amster, PA-C

As a physician assistant who took postgraduate training in pediatrics and as the mother of an internationally adopted daughter, I have committed my life’s work to children. My goal is that with every patient and family I see, I will have some impact on their growth and future while building life-long relationships. I was one of the first pediatric physician assistants in Connecticut, and I can be your child’s primary health care provider or an adjunct to your primary physician.


Susan graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from Hood College and received a Masters of Business Administration in Health Sciences from Sacred Heart University.
