Advanced Practice Providers, or APPs, are medical providers, such as Nurse Practitioners or Physician’s Assistants, who are trained and educated similarly to physicians. They work in all areas of the hospital and our clinics, and patients can be treated by an them in the emergency center, operating room or during routine visits. We’ve reserved some space right here to spotlight these special people in our health system quarterly!
Haleigh Thompson, FNP plays a major role in providing care at UMC Advanced Southwest Gastroenterology. She is described by her peers as sincere, focused, humble and a provider of quality care.
A fellow UMC team member recently had a great experience with Haleigh and said, “I had a joint patient who was having issues with his GI diagnosis post operatively. Haleigh was immediately very responsive and jumped on the situation. Within the hour, we had communication and our issue was being worked on.”
We appreciate your dedication to our GI patients, Haleigh!
