Jacqueline Smola, PA

After receiving a bachelor's degree in biology from Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Connecticut, Jackie earned her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. She is board certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.

As a problem solver, Jackie feels right at home in the specialty of orthopedic surgery‚ÄĒespecially fond of its concreteness, hands-on work and tangible results. Most of all, she enjoys being able to improve her patients' lives while seeing their progress and recovery first hand.

Jackie's medical philosophy revolves around the importance of patients gaining an understanding of their care and becoming part of the decision-making process. Therefore, she feels strongly about taking adequate time to explain issues and procedures to her patients.

An avid traveler who has backpacked through Europe, Jackie is also a dedicated reader of fiction novels, with a particular affection for murder-mysteries and Harry Potter books. Originally from New England, Jackie is appreciative of the opportunity to explore Hampton Roads while enjoying the water, extended warm temperatures and less snow.
