Family Nurse Practitioners provide the full spectrum of primary care. We treat acute illness and injury as well as manage chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure and hormone imbalance. Our goal is to treat the whole person, not just their list of symptoms. Working from this standpoint means we understand how both emotional and physical factors impact overall health. We encourage patients to take an active role in their health care so the provider and patient can work as a team to optimize overall health and well-being.
