How is a Nurse Practitioner (NP) different from a Doctor?
Once an NP has a collaborating physician, she is then able to diagnose patient conditions, prescribe recommended treatment, order labs and other testing as appropriate, and refer to other healthcare providers as needed. NP's are different from physicians in their education and their approach to care. They often take a more holistic approach to patient care. While most of our patients do require medication, it is Gena's goal to ensure we are also addressing other important needs such as: nutrition, sleep hygiene and exercise. She also encourages patients to meet with a therapist/counselor to work on coping strategies, work through trauma, deal with new diagnoses, work on behavioral issues, and address other life stressors.
