Danielle Rives, PA-C, is a physician assistant at AFC Physical Medicine & Chiropractic Centers.
In 2003, Danielle graduated from Grand Canyon University with a bachelor's degree in human biology. Shortly thereafter, she completed the clinical laboratory science program at Arizona State University. In 2010, Danielle graduated from Midwestern University with a master's degree in physician assistant studies. Her experience ranges from adult endocrinology and primary care pediatrics to medical technology with a special emphasis in microbiology.
Her experience at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center (now Dignity Health) working in microbiology led to her interest in medicine. After working in two separate offices and seeing so many diseases being poorly managed, Danielle felt there had to be a better way. She always believed in the benefits of chiropractic care, so when she came across an opening with AFC Physical Medicine & Chiropractic Centers, Danielle researched the clinic and felt it was the perfect "next step" for her as a provider.
For Danielle, the best part about being a provider at AFC is watching people’s lives change for the better. When she's not treating patients, Danielle loves to read, cook, spend time with friends and family, and do outdoor activities such as hiking and snow-skiing.
