Fatima Klassman, PA-C, CAQ-Peds

Fatima Klassman, PA-C, CAQ-Peds began her journey in healthcare with a love for caring for others. From a young age, she volunteered at local hospitals such as Condell and Lake Forest, participating in community health fairs and blood drives. Inspired by her mother, who worked in a Chicago-area hospital, Fatima knew early on that her calling was to provide comprehensive healthcare to those in need.

Fatima’s interest lies in pediatric primary care. The first four years of her practice were dedicated to working with children, and she finds joy in watching them grow and meet developmental milestones. This drove her to obtain a Certificate of Added Qualifications (CAQ) in Pediatrics.

Watching her parents and close family members manage chronic conditions inspired Fatima to specialize in primary care. She empathizes with her patients, treating them with the same care she would want for her own family.

With nine years of experience in the healthcare industry, Fatima’s educational background includes a Bachelor of Science from the University of Illinois at Chicago and a Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science. She is NCCPA board-certified and holds certifications in ACLS, PALS, BLS, and CAQ-Pediatrics.

Having joined Provida Family Medicine (PFM) four months ago, Fatima appreciates the practice’s commitment to providing comprehensive care and staying updated with medical guidelines. She values the welcoming and friendly community at PFM and aims to minimize unnecessary referrals by addressing a wide range of health concerns in-house.

Fatima believes in treating her patients like family, working with them as a team to manage their health. She emphasizes patient education and engagement, fostering compliance and successful treatment outcomes.

Outside of her professional life, Fatima enjoys traveling and spending time outdoors with her husband and three children. They love hiking and exploring new towns together. Additionally, Fatima enjoys drawing and working with mixed media art.
