Florence Neary, RNP joined Dr. Dennis McGroary in 2010. In joining, she continues her work seeing her long-time gynecology patients in a newer, more comfortable location at 667 Stonleigh Avenue, “The Barns”, Carmel New York.
Florence has easy warmth and nurturing spirit, a good fit for our division. She is known for her gift in counseling her patients in preventative health. She has a special interest in contraception and adolescent healthcare, having received her Nurse Practitioner training at Penn State, in a unique program sponsored by Planned Parenthood,.
At the other end of the reproductive health spectrum, she is very adept at helping patients manage postmenopausal breast and bone health, and has cutting-edge information on preventing fractures associated with aging. Florence has developed a loyal patient following, who have been seeing her for their annual gynecology exam for many years. If her patients have an abnormal mammogram or pap smear, she is very qualified to counsel patients as to the options for management as they develop.
Not ready to retire, a few years ago, Florence decided to balance her love of medicine and her family’s desire to move to warmer climates and relocated in South Carolina. She missed her patients, and decided the best of both worlds would be to return to see patients one week per month, knowing that in her absence they will be cared for by trusted colleagues. We feel lucky to add such a warm, experienced, talented clinician to our team.
RPNs have distinguished themselves from other healthcare providers by focusing on the whole person when treating specific health problems and educating their patients on the effects those problems will have on them, their loved ones and their communities. By providing high-quality care and counseling, NPs can lower the cost of health care for patients. For example, patients who see NPs as their primary care providers often have fewer emergency room visits, shorter hospital stays and lower medication costs.
