Freda Meador – The Allen Clinic


(upbeat instrumental music) – Hi, my name is Freda Meador. I am a nurse practitioner
here at The Allen Clinic. I was a nurse for 20 years prior to becoming a nurse practitioner, and I felt like I needed to take my career to that next level. I think as a nurse practitioner, they do get to spend more
time with the patients. Our schedules are varied a
little bit from the physicians, so we get to spend a little
more one-on-one time with them. When I see a patient for the first time, I first sit down with
the patient one-on-one and listen to their problems
that they’re having, and then we try to broaden their diagnosis by doing further testing and trying to figure out
what their problem is. Once we have the test results back, then we develop a plan of care. We have the most amazing staff here. It is not just someone that
you work with everyday. This is actually a second family. You know, everyone works well together. They’re supportive of each other, and everyone gives a
helping hand to the other. And the patients feel that
family environment as well. I want to thank all of my patients for coming here to The Allen Clinic. We respect their values as a patient, and we truly thank them from
the bottom of our hearts. (upbeat instrumental music)
