Philosophy of Care
Her philosophy of care is patient driven. “I want to have positive, open and caring relationships with my patients, they should know how important their health and families are to me,” explains Trisha.
She feels the most satisfying part of providing pulmonary medicine care is helping her patients be the best they can be. “We will work together toward a common goal and a healthier life for them,” Trisha said. “Each patient will have a individualized patient-centered care plan and education to help them attain their goals and a healthier lifestyle.”
“I strive to give exceptional care,” adds Trisha. “I practice by incorporating nursing models into my everyday interactions with patients.” Nursing models focus on holistic care; taking into account physical, emotional, social, economic and spiritual needs of patients.
With her advanced degree in nursing she is able to incorporate both nursing and medical models to provide care. She loves teaching and educating her patients to help them feel empowered so they can take control of their health.
In her spare time, Trisha enjoys spending time with family, traveling, cooking and reading.
