Getting to know your provider

  • Why did you choose your profession?

    As a child I always knew I wanted to work in healthcare. While navigating the medical system as a teen I became motivated to improve the patient experience, particularly at the bedside. I strive to partner with my patients to improve their health and well-being.

  • Why do you work at NOAH?

    By definition NOAH is a network of community health clinics and it exemplifies COMMUNITY in every sense of the word. The relationships I’ve built with patients and colleagues makes me feel like I’m coming home every time I come to work. The ability to serve all members of the community, house essential resources under roof, collaborate with subject-matter experts and educate future healthcare workers -and do it all as a team- is invaluable.

  • What are your passions outside of your profession?

    Swimming, playing sports, traveling, spending time with my dog Lexi, teaching for PA schools and doing home renovations. I have a passion for medical mission work which has taken me to Guatemala annually.

  • If you won the lottery tomorrow, what would you do?

    Travel and learn new languages, continue medical mission work, assist family and donate to causes close to my heart.

What the community is saying …

I have never walked into an office before and been treated so amazingly. The front desk is professional, awesome personalities, informative, helpful, and makes you feel like you are family. The staff that took care of me were professional as well and listened to all my concerns and took care of me in the best possible way. I have never seen an office so happy and inviting! I have been talking about them ever since I was there. I wish everyone can get care like this!

Kimberly - Desert Mission Health Center Patient

This was the best doctor appointment I have had since starting with NOAH! Every single person I dealt with was wonderful! PA Lukas was the most respectful provider I have dealt with at NOAH.

Sandra - Desert Mission Health Center Patient

From the front office staff, Carolina, to the MA, Christiane and to the provider, Alicia Ottmann; the entire patient experience was top notch. I felt like the entire staff was very pleasant and they took the time to listen to my concerns. Alicia was very thorough in her explanations and helped me to understand my treatment options. I would definitely recommend this provider, staff and office to others. Thank you NOAH Desert Mission!
