Cherie Sommer, FNP-BC
Cherie Sommer, FNP-BC, cares for patients of all ages at Lake Regional Express Care – Camdenton.
Sommer's background in hospital nursing serves her well in Express Care, where she cares for patients with urgent but non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries.
“I enjoy seeing a wide variety of patients and providing treatment for conditions ranging from earaches to sprains,” Sommer said. “Plus, my love of suturing and wound care comes in handy at Express Care.”
Sommer believes active listening and collaborative communication is the best way to build strong patient-provider relationships.
“I encourage patients to take part in their own care by ensuring they understand the reasoning behind their plan of care,” Sommer said. “People are much more likely to do their part if they understand the ‘why’ and are included in what is happening with their care.”
Sommer and her husband, Chad, have three children and live in Lebanon. In her free time, she loves being active with her family, cooking, kayaking, swimming and just being outdoors.
Sommer joined Lake Regional in 2021.
