"The Physician Assistant is responsible for assisting the Physician in treating patients."

 

Booo. Not what a PA does. But this is fairly typical here in S. Fl. If you think there's room for advancement or it might be a good stepping stone then I wouldn't worry too much about that first offer. I would check to see what sort of educational environment it will be for you though. When you leave in a year (or whatever) you want to be a year better. Not languishing as someone's scribe.
