Kristen Neal

Physician Assistant

Kristen Neal, PA-C, is dedicated to making sure her patients understand their options for treatment so they can be active, informed participants in their health care. Her goal is for patients to feel heard and understood when they arrive at the clinic and leave with the best treatment plan in place. Kristen first got to know the team at Forté as a patient when she needed arthroscopic hip surgery at the end of her collegiate track and field career. After receiving the highest level of care, she was thrilled to return years later alongside Dr. Lucian Warth, with whom she has been assisting for over five years. Today, Kristen specializes in treating osteoarthritis in the hip and knee, as well as hip and knee replacements.

In her free time, Kristen enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking and biking, entertaining friends and traveling with her husband, Michael.
