Ryan Swanson, BS, MPAS, PA-C

Ryan is a compassionate Physician Assistant who has dedicated his career to helping patients access quality medical care. Ryan was born and raised in Reno, NV, where he spent most of his childhood enjoying the outdoors and playing basketball. In pursuit of his undergraduate degree, he moved to Nebraska to attend Doane College on a basketball scholarship. However, midway through his junior year, Ryan realized his passion for medicine and transferred to the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), where he completed his BS and subsequently attended UNR’s PA program.

Upon graduating from PA school in 2022, Ryan began working with COH, where he found a fulfilling career in helping patients overcome medical challenges. He particularly loves the flexibility of the profession, which allows him to work in various healthcare settings, including outpatient, inpatient, and surgical. What drew Ryan to COH was the culture of treating patients like family, and the commitment to providing comprehensive care that goes above and beyond.

Outside of work, Ryan enjoys spending time with his wife, Callie, and their furry friend, Maverick. They love exploring the outdoors, camping, hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, and playing volleyball and basketball.
