I have been a member of Revere Health Dermatology since 2003, and I am grateful that my work provides me with opportunities to positively impact the lives of others. It is rewarding to lessen the burden of skin disease as well as promote the prevention and early detection of skin cancer. I especially enjoy the relationships I have developed with my long-time patients as well as the potential to develop similar relationships with the new patients I see.
As a nurse practitioner, I place a great deal of importance on educating my patients about their diagnoses and treatment options. One of my goals for each patient encounter is that my patients will feel that their concerns have been understood and that they in turn will understand the information I present to them.
In addition to my clinical work, I enjoy learning new things and sharing my knowledge with others. I have a PhD in nursing research and am an author and reviewer for the Journal of the Dermatology Nurses Association. I am also a preceptor for nurse practitioner students and I occasionally lecture on dermatology topics.
Outside of work, I like to spend as much time as I can with my husband and two boys. Some of the things we like to do together are traveling, skiing, hiking, and biking as well as watching movies and playing the Wii U.
A provider's patient satisfaction rating is determined by patient responses to questions from the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey, administered by NRC Health.
Patients today have more choices than ever, including where, how and from whom they get care. That's why Revere Health believes it's important to provide access to transparent information, empowering our patients to make knowledgable decisions about their healthcare.
CAHPS surveys are funded and overseen by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) within the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Patients receive the nine-question survey via email or phone call, and we publish provider ratings on Revere Health's website once he or she has at least 30 completed surveys.
