Primary Care For Women & Men

Primary Care For Women & Men

Primary care at Ava Health is a partnership between the patient and nurse practitioner to promote health and coordinate services/resources.  Evidence-based care and treatment are provided with the help of guideline-based recommendations following the nurse practitioner model of assessing the whole patient.  These include physical wellbeing, mental health, lifestyle, diet, exercise and sleep habits.

Patients are seen beginning at the age they need contraception to end of life.  Services include but are not limited to STD testing, contraception needs, annual yearly wellness exams, ordering lab work and acute needs (ear infections, sore throat, urinary tract infections, etc).     

Michelle practices what she preaches to her patients and can often be seen on the roads/trails around Missoula participating in Run Wild Missoula events, Dragon Boat racing and in various fitness classes.  Her philosophy is to meet patients where they are and to help them aspire to maintain their optimal health and wellness.

 

Michelle is an integral part of the breast health community here in Missoula. She has become a champion in identifying the implications of genetics for patients with breast cancer and she continues to study and keep current with this ever-changing information. I have found Michelle to be a fierce advocate for all those struggling with a cancer diagnosis.”
