Nurse practitioner Lisa Glantzis, originally from Schenectady, earned her Bachelor of Science in nursing from SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Utica, NY. She proceeded to receive her Master of Science, family nurse practitioner also from SUNY Polytechnic Institute. Lisa is a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners and the Association of Rehabilitation Nurses.
For over 35 years, Lisa has worked with geriatric, pediatric, and rehabilitation populations for most of her career as a registered nurse. With all her years of experience in the field, Lisa knew she had more to offer, so she decided to go back to school and become an advanced practitioner. What Lisa loves most about working in the rehabilitation and internal medicine setting is helping her patients with more than a diagnosis and treatment. She gets to develop a relationship with her patients and their families and has the opportunity to educate them on their health issues. Lisa is interested in pediatrics, traumatic brain injuries, and stroke.
When it comes to caring for patients, Lisa believes treating each patient holistically, reviewing their medical history, and having trust and communication is most important. At Sunnyview Hospital and Rehabilitation Center, Lisa’s job is to treat patients with rehabilitative issues, as well as internal medicine concerns. Her duties include evaluating patient history, performing physical exams, writing physician orders, daily treatments, etc.
Outside of work, Lisa enjoys cooking, gardening, and spending time with family and friends.
