Chelsey Sisko, PA-C, assists neurologist Ki S. Jung, MD, in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with neurological disorders. Chelsey has a special interest in strokes, stroke management, seizure disorders, tremors and movement disorders.
Chelsey’s philosophy of care is for her patients to invest in themselves. When one is taking care of their body, they will be better equipped to handle and recover from whatever illness or trauma comes their way. Chelsey emphasizes the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, and encourages patients to develop a regular exercise routine that is deemed safe by their provider, eat a balanced diet, stay hydrated, and sleep well to give their body the support that it needs to reach its highest potential.
For Chelsey, working at Carolina NeuroSurgery & Associates means providing excellent neurological care to patients in the region. She was particularly drawn in by the fact that the neurosurgery physicians and providers associated with this practice are known for their compassionate and quality care. Chelsey has seen the significance of patients having access to a comprehensive neurologic clinic through neurosurgical evaluations and in-house physical therapy– a one-stop shop for all neurologic care needs!
Chelsey is from a suburb outside of Pittsburgh, PA. In her free time, she is very active and loves to take walks with her husband and their two Golden Retrievers, Remy and Rusty. A sports fan, Chelsey’s favorite teams include the Pittsburgh Steelers, Penguins, Pirates, and Clemson Tigers football.
