Lyndsay Funke, MSN, APRN, FNP-C
Lyndsay Funke, MSN, APRN, FNP, NP-C, cares for patients with lung diseases and respiratory conditions, including asthma, COPD, emphysema, interstitial lung disease and more, at Lake Regional Pulmonology.
Funke has been a nurse at Lake Regional since 2013. Born and raised in Missouri, Funke decided to continue her education and become a nurse practitioner in part because of the shortage of health care providers in rural areas.
“Growing up in a rural area near Stockton Lake and still having family in that same small town, I want to give patients an opportunity to be seen and treated close to home, in a familiar setting,” she said, adding she wants her patients to feel comfortable sharing their treatment wishes.
“Presenting patients with options and then discussing which one best fits their lifestyle and treatment goals allows patients to contribute to their care,” she said. “My role is to establish a trusting a positive relationship.”
