Provider meeting with patient:
women’s health. I became a nurse practitioner because I always felt that I could make a difference and I really like helping people. It gave me the opportunity to go to school to learn things that I enjoy, I’m very scientific, um, but also to work with people
Philosophy of Care on screen:
My philosophy of care is based on treating patients the way I would want to be treated and to me that means taking time to listen to the patient, making them feel comfortable, and establishing a relationship with them that’s based
on trust. Once you do that then you can work together as a team to create a plan that meets their health care needs.
Nurse examining patient:
Certainly I have a passion for women’s health and empowering women to make informed health care choices, um, and working with them I like to, um, promote a lot of different therapies as well as traditional medicine but I also like to incorporate fitness, wellness, uh, diet, exercise, things that we can do as they’re going through certain transitions, so there’s definitely a lot of options in trying to help people feel well. I currently see patients ages 16 and up for women’s health issues.
In women’s health care, women can come to the office for multiple reasons. Sometimes they’re just not feeling well they have questions, concerns. Um, at the age of 21 we do, uh, screenings
