Agnesian HealthCare Welcomes Hospitalist
Agnesian HealthCare welcomes hospitalist Amena Nazeer, MD, to St. Agnes Hospital, 430 E. Division Street, Fond du Lac.
A hospitalist is a physician that specializes in caring for patients while they are hospitalized. Hospitalists communicate with the patient’s primary care providers, as well as any other specialists that may be working with that patient. Patients see hospitalists regularly throughout their inpatient stay. They are available all day or night to care for patients.
“I take a holistic approach to practicing medicine,” according to Dr. Nazeer. “I treat patients as a whole person, not specific diseases. Empathy and compassion are cornerstones of the care I provide. Practicing medicine is more than just prescribing medications – while medications/interventions do play a role in care. Providing effective care in my view, is taking patient’s preferences/ perspectives into account and partnering with patients to improve their quality of life and sense of well-being. To achieve this goal, lifestyle changes and stress management play a pivotal role.”
A graduate of Rawalpindi Medical College, Pakistan, Dr. Nazeer completed her internal medicine residency at the University of Connecticut Health Center. She is board certified in internal medicine.
Dr. Nazeer enjoys reading, walking, and is passionate about holistic medicine.
“I love taking care of geriatric patients and taking a holistic approach to medicine,” she says. “I cherish the long-term relationships that we are able to establish with patients.”
