Your regular physician will continue overseeing your care when you visit our nurse practitioner. Melissa improves access to our practice by assisting with hospital consultations and office visits. This allows us to see new patients in a more timely fashion and to provide for more rapid evaluation of existing patients with acute changes or more urgent concerns. If a particular problem requires the attention of a physician, Melissa works in consultation with the physician to ensure you receive the highest quality care.
