From the Emergency Room to Primary Care

REBECCA MARTIN 4

Rebecca Martin, FNP-BC

Rebecca Martin chose to become a medical professional for one simple reason: she has a passion for helping people. After four years as an RN in the Emergency Department, Rebecca began noticing the critical need for primary care for patients, which pushed her towards working at Finger Lakes Community Health today. As a Family Nurse Practitioner, she wishes to help identify barriers for her patients and make essential changes to keep them out of the Emergency Department and in the hands of their primary care providers.

Treating the whole patient is central in Rebecca’s approach to patient care. She believes that there is so much more to treating patients than just the illness itself. Because of this, she enjoys educating her patients on their illnesses and problem solving to make sure they are getting the care that they deserve.

After spending years in a fast-paced emergency room environment, Rebecca has chosen to settle down and loves spending time with her growing family. She, her husband, her three-year-old daughter, and her two labs all enjoy camping and the outdoors.
