We are pleased to welcome our new Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Nisha Drummond, to our practice. Nisha received her Bachelor’s Degree at Cornell University and then successfully completed her BSN, RN and then the Master’s of Nursing program at Regis College in Weston, MA. Nurse Practitioners diagnose and treat illnesses and are able to order and interpret tests, write prescriptions, and do many common in-office procedures. NPs have a unique focus on wellness and preventative care, and work well in partnership with their patients.
We conducted a thorough search and are very glad to have found Nisha. She started August 22, and she has already been a valuable addition to our team. Nisha can handle a wide range of primary care problems in children ages 0-21. Initially, she will be available to see same-day sick visits, and as her own practice grows, she will help patients manage complex cases in addition to well care. She has a special interest in teenage problems and orthopedics.
With the addition of a new provider, existing patients may worry that they won’t be able to see Dr. Gorlovsky or Dr. Wang anymore. We are committed to maintaining access to all providers and treating your children with a team-based approach. In fact, this is one of the driving forces for bringing in a new provider. This allows us to keep wait times for appointments at a steady state. If you want to see someone specific in the office, you will be able to – just be sure to schedule your well visits at least a month in advance. Nisha will be available to those who want to get in more quickly or have an urgent need when we are unavailable. If you want to choose Nisha as your primary care provider, just let us know.
With Nisha’s help, we are looking forward to spending more quality professional time with patients and families, guiding them in all aspects of high-standard Pediatric Medicine.
