Alan Mirly, PA-C
Alan Mirly enjoys developing a rapport with patients and helping them understand their condition and treatment options. He is an educator at heart and focuses on simplifying complex medical information so that patients can picture what is going on in their body and make informed choices. He believes that it’s an honor and a privilege to be invited into someone’s life to help them get better.
Alan helps guide patients through the diagnostic process, assists doctors in the operating room, and supports patients through their recovery. He spent nearly two decades working in neurosurgery, otolaryngology, primary care, and urgent care practices before joining Vancouver Clinic. Alan was also an assistant professor at Idaho State University’s Physician Assistant Studies Department in Pocatello, Idaho.
Alan began his career in the Navy, where he served as a hospital corpsman, surgical technician, and an ENT technician. He earned bachelor of science degrees in zoology and physician assistant studies from Idaho State University. He earned a master of business administration from the University of Phoenix in Phoenix, Arizona.
Throughout his career, Alan has used his skills to provide humanitarian medical services to people in need. He helped secure funding and organize materials and volunteers for trips to the Dominican Republic, Guyana, and Morocco. He also volunteered for the Pocatello Free Clinic and sat on its board. In 2016 he was awarded Humanitarian of the Year by the Idaho Academy of Physician Assistants.
Away from medicine, Alan loves to take his two sons skiing at every opportunity. He also enjoys going on motorcycle journeys into the mountains to camp.
