Timothy Busher, PA-C, MSPAS

Timothy Busher grew up in a small, rural town in Northeastern Pennsylvania, and has always held a passion for medicine and helping others. Timothy graduated from D’Youville College in Buffalo, NY in 2020 with a combined Bachelor and Master of Science degree in Physician Assistant Studies. Timothy recently joined the team here at The Spine & Orthopedic Center and is excited to dedicate his time towards providing outstanding care to the residents of California’s beautiful Central Coast & Central Valley.

Prior to becoming a Physician Assistant, Timothy regularly volunteered at an annual week-long summer camp for ventilator-dependent children with diseases ranging from spinal muscular atrophy to acute spinal cord injuries. While in PA School, Timothy was awarded the Outstanding Traditional Student Award which is presented to the student who best exemplifies the PA profession, based on academic achievement, service, and leadership. Timothy was an active member of Lambda Sigma National Honor Society, an invitational national honor society for second-year undergraduate students, and later became Vice President following a week-long campaign. Timothy served as an elected official of D’Youville College Student Physician Assistant Association, a student-led organization committed to peer-mentoring and local philanthropy. Throughout his training, Timothy completed twelve clinical rotations in differing medical specialties throughout New York, gaining experience in orthopedic medicine, pain medicine, as well as surgery.

In his free time, Timothy enjoys surfing, climbing the local crags, traveling to new places, hiking, reading, working out, and spending time with his friends and family.
