Nurse Practitioner Clinics
Every Wheeling Health Right Patient first sees a Nurse Practitioner at the clinic for evaluation. All our Nurse Practitioners have prescriptive authority and practice under a collaborative agreement with a local physician. Using Nurse practitioners has helped us provide timely and sometimes same day care for those in need of medical attention.
Our nurse practitioners provide primary care and can treat chronic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, etc.
What is a Nurse Practitioner?
NPs excel at being a partner in health, providing high quality primary, acute and specialty healthcare services similar to those of a physician. Nurse practitioners prescribe medications, treat illness, and administer physical exams.
Nurse practitioners can also help you stay well! With a focus on health promotion, disease prevention, and health education and counseling, they can guide patients to make smarter health and lifestyle choices. Preventive screening for diseases such as elevated cholesterol, asthma and cancer are another focus of nurse practitioners.
