Catharine Kahrig, FNP-BC
Catharine Kahrig, FNP-BC, cares for patients at Lake Regional Express Care in Eldon and Osage Beach.
A people person, Kahrig chose a career in nursing because she wanted to help others. She said she especially likes educating her patients.
“I don’t just expect them to understand why I’m recommending a treatment,” Kahrig said. “I take the time to explain why the treatment is going to help. I want to arm them with basic medical knowledge.”
Patients do not have to be established with the clinic to visit Express Care. As a result, Kahrig does not have a history with most of her patients, so building trust is a priority.
“I always take an interest in them to make them feel comfortable,” Kahrig said, adding she likes connecting with each patient and has a special fondness for children. “I understand a crying child is crying for a reason. I enjoy helping them feel better and want to make the clinic a happy place for them.”
Originally from Illinois, Kahrig was drawn to the Lake of the Ozarks by friends impressed with the area. She joined Lake Regional in 2018.
