David Deary

Physician Assistant
David Deary, PAC is a physician assistant in Providence, Rhode Island. He is married to Nicole Deary and they have three children, Colby (5), Caleb (3), and Elizabeth (8 months). David has been an advocate for and a beneficiary of the Rhode Island Temporary Caregiver Insurance (TCI) law. David’s three year old son Caleb was born with a rare brain malformation called lissencephaly. Caleb required a great deal of medical care (e.g., hospitalizations, home nursing, and many doctors’ appointments). With the development of the Temporary Caregiver Insurance (TCI) Law in Rhode Island, David and Nicole were able to take time out of work and care for Caleb during his final weeks. David and Nicole were provided with wage replacement benefits during this time of distress and were able to focus solely on spending time with their son before he passed. David continues to speak and advocate to further the TCI law in order to help other families like his own.
