Julie Russell, FNP
Julie Russell, FNP, cares for patients of all ages at Lake Regional Clinic – Eldon, and she has a special interest in pediatrics.
"I went into family practice because I enjoy addressing concerns and teaching patients how to take care of themselves to prevent health problems," she said. "I find it especially rewarding to watch my patients grow from young children, and I love their endless smiles and hugs."
Whenever possible, Russell presents her patients with options for treatment and talks through what will work best for them and their family.
"It's important to me to give patients and their families the time and attention that they need," Russell said. "Sometimes a few extra minutes can have a huge impact on a patient's outcome."
Russell joined Lake Regional in 1997.
