In her own words, it’s her “favorite thing.” Her role allows her to interact with a wide spectrum of patients — from young individuals recovering from their first heart attack due to lifestyle choices to elderly patients contemplating the next phase of life. Lindsey guides them on the path to success, educating them about medications, lifestyle changes, and the importance of heart health.
“I can give more because I genuinely feel that Northside has my best interests at heart. Knowing we have safe patient ratios and access to top-notch employee resources, I can confidently provide the best care to my patients,” shared Ostrowidzki.
