Vida Pandzic, PA-C
Family Medicine Faculty
University of Iowa
Dzevida (Vida) Pandzic received her bachelor’s in human physiology and her master’s in clinical exercise physiology from the University of Iowa. She completed her master’s in physician assistant studies at Shenandoah University.
As a native of Bosnia & Herzegovina, she speaks fluent Bosnian/Serbo-Croatian.
She was drawn to work at Eastern Iowa Health Center (EIHC) because of its strong ties to the community and the organization’s dedication to addressing health equity and barriers to care for patients, their families, and community members.
“I am committed to providing patient-centered, culturally competent care to individuals from all walks of life and strive to foster an environment where patients feel safe, respected, and heard,” Pandzic says. Shared decision-making is at the forefront of her medical philosophy. “I encourage my patients to play an active role in their care and believe that decisions pertaining to one’s health should not only reflect medical evidence and clinical expertise but also the unique needs, preferences, and values of the individual,” she says.
In her time outside of the clinic, Vida enjoys spending time with family, friends, & furbabies (Chloe & Felix), traveling, outdoor activities, Agatha Christie novels, & board games.
