Ellen Gastauer is a certified adult health nurse practitioner specializing in geriatrics and internal medicine. After being in the nursing field for almost 20 years, she went back to school to expand that role as a nurse practitioner. "Nursing appealed to me initially as a profession that helped vulnerable people on a very profound and personal level."
Gastauer's care philosophy is simple yet patient oriented. "I try to combine the nursing and medical models of caring and curing to achieve the best patient outcomes with the least amount of disruption to a patient's normal homeostasis."
As an adult health nurse practitioner she treats patients over the age of 18. "However, I am especially interested in the geriatric population, who are in many ways the most vulnerable among us."
