Our Staff

At Denali Cardiac and Thoracic Surgical Group, Nurse Practitioners are an integral part of the patient care experience.

Operating in the office, emergency room, hospital wards, and intensive care units, they are experts in the management of all phases of preoperative care, and collaborate in the patient care process throughout the entire course of treatment.

Nurse Practitioners may be involved in taking your history, conducting physical examinations, reviewing and adjusting your medications, reviewing your laboratory values and tests, providing counseling on upcoming surgery, making daily visits to you in the hospital to follow your progress, arranging discharge from the hospital and additional follow up as an outpatient.

Our Nurse Practitioners are exceptionally well trained in managing all aspects of cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, benign and malignant tumors of the chest, management of blood pressure, cholesterol and triglycerides, and many aspects of primary care treatment and recovery.
