About Patricia Joele Raymond, CRNP

Toggle accordion item

Why did you pursue a career in medicine, and why did you choose your particular specialty?

I wanted to be a doctor when I was a child because I wanted to help people. I chose the field of nursing because the nurse practitioner track would allow me the opportunity to help people.

What types of conditions do your patients have, and what kinds of patients do you see?

As an Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner, I am certified to care for patients who are 15 years old to death. In primary care, patients present with chronic health conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, and low thyroid. I have also cared for patients during acute or urgent episodes like upper respiratory tract infections, strep throat, influenza, and new diagnoses of diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.

Do you perform any particular procedures or practice in any centers that you'd like to highlight?

I perform physicals, preoperative physicals, pap smears, vaginal swabs to check for infections, breast exams, nasal swabs, throat swabs, intramuscular injections, and subcutaneous injections.

Why do you think patients should come to you and your team for treatment—what are some differentiating factors?

UMMS is a large entity that will give the patient access to every single specialty. I am compassionate, love to teach, and believe in caring for the patient holistically. I am excited to join this team.

Do you have a specific treatment philosophy that you'd like to share with prospective patients?

I believe if you teach the patient about their disease process, there is a high chance of compliance with the treatment plan. We can have the best outcome when we work together.
