I have a master's degree in nursing (MSN) and have been specializing in the women's health area since 1969. I am nationally certified (RNC) and have been a Women's Health Care Nurse Practitioner since 1990. In June 2005, I joined the offices of Dr. Gabrielle Goodrick, a family practice physician also very comitted to female health care.
With many years of experience, my strengths have developed into an ability to anticipate a woman's concerns (very handy when women are reluctant to ask intimate questions), decrease anxiety, and create a comfortable bond between my clients and myself. I truly believe that humor is one of the best medicines there is, and that most negative things can be overcome with the proper attitude!
I perform yearly GYN exams and infection checks. Nurse practitioners are teachers also, and I teach my patients about how to lose weight, which vitamins to take, what exercises are effective, which birth control is good for you - and HIM!! - and how to recognize infections. I also send monthly newsletters to all of my patients, by e-mail if you have it, or "snail mail" if you don't!
So take a minute and subscribe to my monthly Healthy Woman Newsletter.
Does she speak Spanish?
Well, Lynne reads and writes Spanish, but it hasn't come out of her mouth yet. She's trying! How about a little French?
