Hi, I’m Cristina! I am a Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner. I received my Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from the University of South Florida and worked as a Registered Nurse at a NYC hospital for 8 years prior to completing my Master’s Degree in Nursing at Columbia University. I then continued my education at Columbia to pursue my Doctor of Nursing Practice. As healthcare is evolving, I am passionate about creating innovative healthcare strategies that are of the highest quality and efficiency, but also economically feasible. I offer the most up-to-date, evidenced-based treatment while practicing with a holistic approach to care. I strive to create an environment where patients feel empowered to optimize their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. I believe that the relationship between a medical provider and patient is a collaborative one, in which they work together as partners to achieve health and lifestyle goals.
