Nurse Deborah Smith runs the outpatient clinic for Interventional Neuroradiology (INR) where she counsels and examines patients pre and post-procedure. Nurse Smith is available on an as-needed basis for our patients who have questions or concerns about their procedure. She also serves as a care coordinator between referral offices and our service to ensure our patients are prepared correctly for procedures.
Nurse Smith is primarily interested in ensuring patient safety and satisfaction. Here at INR, she works with our medical illustrator, Lydia Gregg, to develop patient education material such as brochures and educational videos.
