Adrienne always goes above and beyond with her patients. This beautiful, intelligent Nurse Practitioner shows so much compassion for the care and outcome of her patients, knows every patient and family member in their first visit, listens to her patients and families and gives state-of-art care to everyone involved. She works as a community partner and her communication skills far exceed the average healthcare provider. I wish all my kids would grow up to be like Adrienne! She is a miracle worker.
