Advanced Practice Providers

Michelle Sedlacek, PA-C

A lover of the great outdoors, I was fortunate to grow up in Flagstaff, AZ, where I thoroughly enjoyed the hiking, the skiing, and the small town vibe. As a child, I was also fortunate to have an extremely encouraging and helpful physician who inspired me to pursue a career in medicine.  When I “grew up,” I attended Friends University and earned Bachelor's degrees in both biology and Spanish, biology because it was a good foundation for medical training and Spanish because I have always been fascinated by languages. You see, I love people, and knowing more languages means being able to communicate with more people. I was privileged to put my Spanish to use in college during a 3-month mission to Bolivia where I loved every minute as I helped people and got to know them.  I went on to receive my Master of Physician Assistant degree from Wichita State University in 2008. I spent my early career working in Emergency Medicine in Topeka, KS, where I loved providing relief to people when they weren’t feeling very good. I also feel like the ER helped to give me a broader perspective and opened my mind. In 2011 my husband and I moved to Phoenix, and I worked in Urgent Care for a little while until I joined the PeeDoc team in 2016.  I have been so excited to work at Arizona Center for Urology! Here I love that I truly get to know my patients, and I especially love being able to see them progress and get better. 
 
I enjoy spending my free time with my husband and two small boys. We often visit family in Kansas, and we spend a lot time at the park. As a family, we love to travel and be outside whenever possible.

Heidi Quist, PA-C

I grew up in a mining town in southern New Mexico and moved to Arizona as a teenager. With seven younger siblings, I spent a lot of my younger years caring for other people, and I enjoyed it so much that by the time I went to college, I knew that helping others was what I wanted to do with my life.  I started my career as an English teacher, with both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in English from the University of Arizona. After a fulfilling and heart-warming five years teaching at both the high school and university levels, I decided to return to school to pursue a childhood dream of a career in medicine, bringing with me my philosophy that the best way to teach someone is to care about them. In 2017, I completed my Master's of Medical Science in Physician Assistant Studies at Midwestern University, and throughout my training I was often struck by the parallels between the art of medicine and the art of teaching. I believe that the best way to treat patients is to care about them, and I have loved practicing very personalized medicine. I find that the field of urology in particular has been a good home for me because I am honored by the opportunity to lift and support patients as they tackle conditions that are often painful or uncomfortable to discuss and work through. I am excited to be part of the positive and patient-focused team here at the Arizona Center for Urology!

In addition to loving my job, I also love to volunteer at a clinic downtown, read novels, play piano, try new board games, and go on adventures with my husband and daughters.
