Laura Koon joined GSI as a Physician Assistant in 2010. She works at the Mechanicsville office with Dr. Duckworth, Dr. Kahn and Dr. Feder.
She received both her bachelor’s in Health Sciences and her master’s Physician Assistant degree at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pa. Prior to joining GSI, Laura worked in primary care in a medically underserved area of North Carolina. Being a certified physician assistant, Laura is required to maintain a working knowledge of general medicine, but she has made gastroenterology her specialty and belongs to several gastrointestinal associations.
Laura was born and raised in central Pennsylvania, but she has happily called Richmond her home since she moved here three years ago. She is the proud mother of two boys and one girl. She enjoys camping and fishing, relaxing with a good book, cooking and trying new recipes, and taking weekend trips to see family and friends.
