Our nurse practitioners are advanced practice nurses who provide high quality healthcare and assist our patients in making better lifestyle and healthcare decisions. Similar to physicians, nurse practitioners help with every angle of patient care, including patient evaluation, diagnosis, development and implementation of treatment plans, medical prescriptions, and consultation. They also counsel patients with recommendations for preventative treatments and provide education to promote health and wellness. Our nurse practitioners work as a team with Pulmonary Associates physicians. These nurses collaborate with patients, their families, and other healthcare professionals to provide optimal, individualized care.
