Kim Farris, MSN, APRN, FNP, NP-C
Kim Farris, MSN, APRN, FNP, NP-C, cares for adult patients with lung diseases and respiratory conditions at Lake Regional Pulmonology. Farris works closely with Pulmonologist Harjyot “Joe” Sohal, M.D., and Cira Monnig, FNP.
Farris has worked at Lake Regional since 2000. She started as a registered nurse in the Postanesthesia Care Unit and Outpatient Services and then moved to Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation. For seven years, until 2019, she provided patient care at Lake Regional Cancer Center.
Farris approaches her patients as if she is caring for one of her own family members and delights in the opportunity to build respectful relationships with every patient.
“Effective communication is key to building a trusting relationship between the provider and patient, as well as their families,” Farris said. “Taking a little extra time to connect and better explain things can make a big difference in patient understanding and compliance.”
Originally from Barnett, Missouri, Farris has lived in Eldon for more than 30 years with her husband, Sonny. They have three children, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. In her free time, Farris enjoys spending time with her family, going camping and being outdoors.
