Care Philosophy

As a Adult/Family Nurse Practitioner, I believe we are all responsible for our health and that patients have the ability and the responsibility to care for themselves. My job is to coach, mentor, advise, recommend, lead, and teach, but ultimately the patient has to choose to be healthy or not. Lifestyle changes are not easy, but if you want to work, I will give you all the help I can to get you to your goals.Read more

Dr. Houglan's Care Philosophy

As a Adult/Family Nurse Practitioner, I believe we are all responsible for our health and that patients have the ability and the responsibility to care for themselves. My job is to coach, mentor, advise, recommend, lead, and teach, but ultimately the patient has to choose to be healthy or not.

Dr. Houglan says...

As a Nurse Practitioner for over 20 years in civilian and military settings, I have extensive experience helping patients get healthier and learn to take better care of their health. I mentor, coach, advise, and educate my patients and their families. I encourage patients to discuss their health care goals with their family members and health care providers and complete Advance Directives. I am a certified Patient Centered Advance Care Planner (through Gunderson Lutheran) and completed my Doctoral Project "End of Life Discussions in the Community". All patients have the right to have their end of life wishes known and followed.

I have extensive experience caring for patients with chronic medical problems like chronic lung disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking, and obesity. I also am a strong advocate for hospice services for medically frail individuals who would benefit from those services. I provide home visits for home bound patients.

Dr. Houglan says...

I perform physical exams for a broad range of health care needs and make referrals as needed for additional services. I perform well woman care, provide education on urinary incontinence, birth control, and other women's health issues.
