About Helen

Helen is a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner and has worked in health care for more than 13 years. She has cared for her patients in primary care, emergency medicine, outpatient surgery, solid organ transplantation, and pain management settings with 8 years of her experience acquired at one of the best medical facilities in the world, the Mayo Clinic Hospital (Phoenix Campus). 

Family Nurse Practitioners have six years of additional medical education, beyond the two years required for Registered Nurses.  The Doctor of Nursing Practice, Family Nurse Practitioner (DNP, FNP) has an additional 8 years of education beyond that of a Registered Nurse.  This education includes, but is not limited to, advanced anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, epidemiology, and pharmacology.  In addition, the Family Nurse Practitioner must complete extensive clinical primary care training in adult, geriatric, pediatric, and women's health.  They must also pass a very difficult testing process to become certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP).  Furthermore, they have extensive training critically analyzing the latest quantitative and qualitative research, using only the very best research to provide the best evidence based medicine to their patients. This is the reason why, just like a physician, Family Nurse Practitioners can practice independently in primary care medicine in Arizona. 

Helen graduated with Honors, obtaining her Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Master of Science in Nursing and Family Nurse Practitioner from Grand Canyon University.  In addition, she is currently working on her Doctorate to become a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) from Grand Canyon University which will be completed September of 2019.

We accept coverage from all major insurers

We require that our patients bring their insurance card to each appointment, as well as their co-pay if required by insurance. Most patients believe this is because we want to be reimbursed for the medical care rendered. Although this is true, it is also very important since your laboratory, x-ray facility, pharmacy, durable medical equipment company, home health care company may be chosen by your insurance company. Your failure to use the appropriate insurance mandated company could result in unexpected costs to you. Thus, if we are unaware of your current insurance carrier, we could inadvertently use the wrong company. We encourage patients to be familiar with the policies of their particular insurance plan, and to obtain the necessary referrals before appointments as needed.
