Bernadette Gruchalski is a nurse practitioner providing medical care for adults. She treats chronic and acute issues and offers guidance to patients on health prevention and maintenance.
Bernadette’s philosophy of care considers the whole person when treating or preventing disease. “It is important to work with patients not only from a medical aspect but also spiritually and emotionally in order for them to successfully participate in their care,” she says. “Taking time to listen and understand helps in providing this holistic care. I also strongly believe in health promotion through education, sharing information with patients on chronic illnesses affecting our population, with prevention as a goal.”
