Karen Root, APRN

I chose a career in nursing years ago when a nurse changed my life as she cared for a critically ill family member.  Because of her I became a Nurse Practitioner. I attempt to repay what was given to me all those years ago by striving to provide compassionate care to each and every person I see regardless of age or socioeconomic status.
