Establishing ongoing relationships with her patients is one of family nurse practitioner Elizabeth Nelson's favorite aspects of her job. "I spent much of my career as an inpatient nurse," Elizabeth said. "The transition to family medicine has given me a chance to get to know my patients. Not only can I provide acute care, but I can also provide invaluable health screenings and education. And, the opportunity to treat the whole family is a special privilege."
Elizabeth has a special interest in helping patients living with chronic conditions. "I find chronic disease management to be one of the most challenging and rewarding areas of my practice," she said. "Providing counseling and support for these patients with the goal of improving their health and quality of life is so fulfilling."
Staying active one of Elizabeth's favorite pastimes. "I enjoy hiking with my yellow lab, boating, and spending time at the beach in Charleston with my family," she shared. "I also love watching Clemson football and traveling, including making medical mission trips."
