Fidalgo Medical Associates (FMA) welcomes family nurse practitioner Vola Le Roux to its staff.
Le Roux holds a master’s degree from Maryville University in St. Louis, Missouri, a bachelor’s degree from Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi, Texas, and a bachelor’s degree from Nanterre Paris X-University in Paris, France.
In her practice, Le Roux sees herself as both a teacher and learner. She enjoys educating patients about health and health maintenance and helping them improve their lives. She also embraces opportunities to continuously learn. “I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from doctors, specialists, and my experiences at the clinic,” says Le Roux. “I admire and learn from patients who are proactive about staying healthy.”
Le Roux’s philosophy of care revolves around seeing the whole person. “Caring is an art. Being a caregiver requires compassion, empathy, consideration, positivity, and hopefulness,” she says. “My goal is to be a patient’s guide through illnesses or health challenges and to provide reassurance. This requires me to be competent and caring about a patient’s feelings, especially during difficult times.”
Fidalgo Medical Associates is located at 1213 24th Street in Anacortes. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 360-293-3101.
