CENTRAL SQUARE, NY – Family Nurse Practitioner Cassandra Hunsberger has joined the staff of Primecare Medical Practice, located in the lower level of the Central Square Medical Center, 3045 East Ave., in Central Square.
Hunsberger will provide comprehensive primary care services to patients of all ages.
She will treat upper respiratory issues, sick visits, injuries, infections, rashes and sprains or strains, as well as routine screenings and the related follow-up care and women’s health services.
Hunsberger has steadily advanced her nursing education, first with earning an Associate of Science Nursing degree from Broome Community College and then obtaining a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing from SUNY Upstate Medical University, where she graduated magna cum laude in 2012.
This past May, she earned her degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner, also from Upstate Medical University.
While studying for her latest degree, she also worked as a registered nurse at St. Joseph’s Hospital.
“I love being a nurse, but I wanted to do more as a family nurse practitioner, which as a part of healing a patient allows me to refer to specialists and write prescriptions, as well as other responsibilities,” she said.
Hunsberger said being a nurse was something she always wanted to do.
She explained that her mother, also a nurse, was the perfect role model, who she wants to emulate and acquire her own stories of caring for patients.
Hunsberger said she was looking forward to working in a community setting alongside Primecare’s other providers, which include Heather Finger, MD, Vandana Patil, MD, Timothy Tramontana, MD, and Kamal Gautam, MD, along with Claudia Krider, a physician assistant.
