John Prentice and wife


John Prentice, PA-C has practiced emergency, urgent care and family medicine for over 30 years. He graduated from the University of Southern California PA Program at Los Angeles County Hospital and has practiced in California and Washington.

He and Dr Baker met in a local Family Practice and have been friends and practice partners in one location or another for over 20 years. He joined Dr Baker as he founded New Heights Clinic and has volunteered there since its inception. He has partnered with Dr. Baker in the care of missionaries serving in Indonesia, often “tag teaming” on alternate trips.

John travels to Papua, Indonesia annually with his church to provide family practice services to North American expats serving there. John’s chief joy is caring for families long term, getting to know them, watching them grow and helping them overcome the challenges that life brings.

He is joined in life’s journey by his wife of over 40 years, Chitra, and they alternate travel to Indonesia and India to visit, serve and celebrate with their family there. They have two grown daughters working in education, one in Indonesia and one in Woodland, WA.
