A Louisiana native, Amy Roks, PA-C, feels at home in her work with patients alongside neurosurgeon Matthew Hefner, MD. She was fascinated with the science and physiology of the human body and its amazing capabilities from a very young age. When Roks was an infant less than a year old, her mother had a brain aneurysm and an emergency neurosurgery saved her life. Roks enjoyed caring for people as the years went by, making healthcare a natural fit for her. Decades later, Roks is grateful to help patients of all ages in similar situations. As a physician assistant, Roks provides quality care in a personalized way, just as she would her own family.
An early interest in healthcare inspired Roks to take every science elective she could throughout school. Roks earned a bachelor’s degree in medical laboratory science at LSU Health Sciences Center-New Orleans. She worked in a hospital laboratory as a medical technologist, which gave her a strong diagnostic background. Roks went on to obtain her Master of Physician Assistant Studies degree at LSUHSC-Shreveport School of Allied Health Professions, where she earned the Perseverance Award. She is certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants.
Today Roks lives with her husband and two children on a farm in Benton. She enjoys time outdoors with her family as they garden and care for their animals – chickens, goats, pigs, rabbits, ducks and bees. With her family, Roks also enjoys camping, hiking and trail riding.
