Physician's Assistant

Jason MacDonald

Hi, I’m Jason! I was born in Ohio and raised in Michigan where I studied Engineering Chemistry at Oakland University to become a product engineer in the automotive industry. In 2001, I switched gears and obtained my EMT and Paramedic certifications to pursue a career as a paramedic. There I developed a passion for healthcare and moved to Atlanta, GA to become a Physician Assistant through Emory University. After graduating Emory, I moved to Texas to work in emergency medicine. I’m excited to be working with Dr. Linebarger learning preventive and integrative medicine and furthering my primary care knowledge base.

I met my lovely wife, Melissa, while working in the emergency department as a Physician’s Assistant. She has two children and currently works in Oncology serving breast cancer patients. We have been together for several years, thriving in Central Austin with our three dogs. During my free time, I enjoy fitness, Austin’s many great parks and music venues, biking, hiking, cooking, listening to music, and (poorly) playing the drums.
