Mrs. Bernknopf, APN Personal Statement

As a Nurse Practitioner, I have extensive post graduate training and clinical experience.  I am board certified much like physicians. I can be your primary practitioner, do your annual exams, treat your illnesses, order diagnostic testing, prescribe medications. I have an agreement with a collaborating physician who advises me on complex care cases and critical conditions.  The difference between an NP and a physician is the approach.  NP’s tend to focus on “the whole person,” and concentrate on wellness.  Having begun my nursing career with the desire to help people, I continued through to the advanced practitioner level to become more qualified to do exactly that, help.

I am approachable, I understand the human condition.  I know that life happens and unfortunately sometimes we need the care of medical professionals, I am here to help.  I can discuss and advocate for both conventional and alternative treatment options.  I look forward to building relationships with my patients so I can treat illnesses but also partner with them in maintaining their health.

Here at Riverview Medical Associates we strive for the best patient care experience.  We are a team.  I am excited to be part of the team!
