Our Providers

Providing you with the best doctors for the best care

Andrew M
Romanowsky, MD

I'm Andrew and I love my Lowell roots! I grew up with 5 siblings off Andover St. in a neighborhood full of kids where we ran untethered daily til the grumble in the belly or the fading light told you it was time for dinner. I have countless friends, teachers, and coaches who helped shape me into who I am today. I also spent a lot of time with my grandma and grandpa on Mt. Washington St. soaking up stories of swimming in the canals, delivering blocks of ice up 3 flights of stairs, my great grandfather building the Lowell Auditorium and Court House, as well as football days at Boston College where my grandfather played his games at Fenway Park.

After graduating from Lowell High School, I attended Boston College for my undergraduate education, where, like my grandfather, I played 4 years of football, and then attended Tufts for Medical School. I spent the next 4.5 years in Portland, ME completing my Internal Medicine residency and then working in the hospital at Maine Medical Center.

I love being back in Lowell, working hard, and caring for the community that helped raise me. While I work with three great young physician assistants now, I was blessed to spend the first 5 years here working alongside my Dad. I think it was a slice of heaven for both of us. I love coming to work every day!


In my spare time, I am almost always with family. I have 4 active kids who constantly keep me on my toes. We love spending time outdoors or watching their many games, concerts, performances, etc. We spend a lot of time in Maine, where my wife, Teydin, is from. I love exercising, and after a back injury forced me away from running, I have become a little fanatical about cycling. I've cycled up Mt. Washington, rode up to Portland, completed the Pan Mass, and attempted to ride to NYC in one shot on two occasions, both unsuccessful (I will complete this someday!). There's lots more, but, as usual I'm long-winded and running over, so if you want to know anything else, you'll have to ask when you come in.

What is a Physician Assistant (PA)?

Physician Assistants are medical providers, most with graduate-level educations. They are licensed to diagnose and treat illness and disease, to prescribe medication and work in collaboration with a licensed physician. Physician Assistants have advanced education in general medicine. They treat patients independently in partnership with the physician.

In the primary care setting, Physician Assistants provide almost all the clinical services that physicians provide, including performing physical exams, diagnosing, and treating illnesses and prescribing medications.

Physician Assistants are qualified to practice by graduation from an accredited PA educational program and certification by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA).

Physician Assistants: Eikatarine Berube, Danielle McGinty, and Heather Thyne.

Kat, Danielle, and Heather are a very important part of our practice and patient care. They work closely with Dr. Romanowsky, take patient histories, perform exams, order laboratory and diagnostic studies, prescribe medications and develop treatment plans. In addition, they provide patient education, perform minor surgery (stitches, incision and drainage of abscess, suture and staple removal, and wart removal).

Eikatarine T Berube, PA-C

My name is Eikatarine, an old Greek name passed down from my grandmother, but I prefer to be called either Katerine or Kat. I’m a graduate of Rivier University in Nashua, NH, where I completed a Bachelor’s in biology and minor in chemistry. I then went on for my Master’s at MCPHS in Manchester, NH and am now a Certified Physician Assistant (PA).

After completion of my degree, I worked at an urgent care for about 10 months. There, I felt as if I wasn’t being given the opportunity to learn and grow in my role as a PA and was missing out on building the close relationships with my patients that I originally hoped for. I trained with Dr. Andrew’s uncle in Salem, NH, which is how I ended up at this practice. It was immediately clear that I had found my home!

I grew up in Derry, NH and have remained in Derry. I love being within an hour of the mountains, ocean, and the city, as I am given a diverse landscape to explore that is close to home. I enjoy working out, gardening, hiking, and golfing in my spare time. I cherish the relationships I have built with my patients so far and look forward to building new ones in the future

Danielle J McGinty, PA-C

My name is Danielle, and I am a graduate of the Master of Physician Assistant Studies program at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences (MCPHS) in Manchester, New Hampshire. I am a Certified Physician Assistant (PA-C). Prior to PA school, I worked at Lowell General Hospital as an Emergency Room Technician. I also worked at Massachusetts General Hospital in the Department of Neurology as a Research Technician. I received my Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science from the University of New Hampshire in Durham, New Hampshire. 


I am passionate about primary care because it is a setting that allows for building long term relationships with patients. I hope to empower my patients to be educated about their health. I am committed to being the best provider I can be for my patients and strive to create an environment where my patients feel comfortable and heard. 


I grew up in Chelmsford, MA. I am excited about the opportunity to provide care to members of the community around where I grew up! I love being outside and enjoy running, soccer, hiking, and traveling.

Heather L Thyne, PA-C

My name is Heather, I am a graduate of the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy in Manchester, NH and am a Certified Physician Assistant and Athletic Trainer. I worked previously with sports teams in the prevention, rehabilitation, and treatment of athletic injuries.

My passion is Family Medicine, where I can build close relationships with my patients and get to know and understand who they are as individuals. My goal is to provide the best care to you and your loved ones, with the hope of being someone you can trust and feel comfortable communicating openly with.

I live in Nashua, NH with my husband, daughter, son, and two dogs (King and Phoebe). We love the outdoors and enjoy nature, whether we are hiking, going to the beach, or skiing up in the mountains. My family also has a fondness for traveling and exploring the world.
