New Beginnings Pediatrics is fortunate to have three mid-level healthcare providers who deliver outstanding care to our patients. Anne Marie Lillwitz and Kelly McCurtain are Pediatric Nurse Practitioners, or PNP. A PNP is a nurse who holds a graduated degree and advanced pediatric clinical experience. PNPs are nationally certified and maintain their licensure through continuing medical education. Anne Marie has worked as pediatric mid-level providers for many years. Kelly joined our practice as a new grad in 2012 and is a wonderful addition to the practice through her knowledge and care for our patients.
Mid-level providers are qualified to provide a broad range of medical services. Our PNPs diagnose, treat, and educate patients about medical problems. They see both acute and chronic illnesses as well as provide well child care including anticipatory guidance, developmental screening, and immunization counseling. Mid-level providers prescribe medications and order/interpret lab and radiology studies. They refer to specialists and therapists as necessary and participate in after hours call coverage.
Anne Marie and Kelly work closely with all of the pediatricians at New Beginnings Pediatrics and we are privileged to have them as part of our medical staff.
