Jennifer DiFalco is a board certified family nurse practitioner who specializes in adult internal medicine working with Dr. Sharon Krieger and Dr. Scott Klares treating a wide range of patient concerns. Her goal as a nurse practitioner is to focus on patient-centered care while optimizing quality of life through personalized comprehensive treatment plans, education, and health promotion. She believes that patient education is the cornerstone for optimal wellness.
“As a family nurse practitioner, I believe in ‘being with the patient.’ Nursing bedside manner is extremely important and, in my opinion, valuable for my patients. I believe in the patient-centered care approach, which means taking my time with patients and not rushing through appointments. I focus on the entire patient and the implementation of tailored care plans to each unique individual I care for.”
Jennifer treats a wide variety of patient concerns ranging from acute symptoms, same day illness, chronic issues, annual physical exams, preoperative medical clearance, Medicare wellness visits, LGBTQIA wellness, world travel medicine/immunization, end of life wellness, and referrals including subspecialty providers, visiting nurse services, and hospice/end of life care when appropriate.
Jennifer received her master’s degree in science and nurse practitioner degree from Pace University. She completed her internships at CareMount Medical, and worked as a registered professional nurse at CareMount Medical in the Internal Medicine Department. Throughout her career, Jennifer has worked in a variety of settings and has cared for patients ranging from the newborn to geriatric lifespan.
