Tracy Robertson, M.S.N., F.N.P.-B.C., is a family nurse practitioner who specializes in colon and rectal surgeon and a member of the comprehensive cancer care team at MidMichigan Health. This team includes medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, specialized surgeons, interventional radiologists, as well as nurse navigators. Tracy joins Colon and Rectal Surgeons Kristin Busch, M.D., and George Zainea, M.D., along with a team of general and specialty surgeons.
She was attracted to the field of colorectal surgery because it gives her the ability to broadly participate in patient care from clinical research to bedside care. “I welcome the opportunity to see the results of my care from the beginning of the diagnosis through the end of treatment,” said Tracy.
Philosophy of Care
Tracy strives to have a strong relationship with her patients so she can recognize their needs and make sure their expectations are always met. “My principle roll is to provide the patient with accurate information about their diagnosis and work toward accomplishing a set goal for their long term health,” she said.
“I like to have an open and honest relationship with my patients,” Tracy adds. “I’m committed to listening to my patients and working with them to meet their needs while collaborating closely with physicians and other members of the health care team to achieve the best outcome.”
“Colorectal cancer is the third most common diagnosed cancer in both women and men in the United States,” said Tracy. “That’s why screening colonoscopies are so important for detecting polyps or cancers at an early stage.”
In her free time Tracy enjoys attending her sons’ extracurricular activities, working out, going for long walks by the water and traveling.
