Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner – Azarina Zayere MSN, RN, FNP-BC
We are always striving to maintain our five-star rating as a premier integrated facility with all three pillars of services Chiropractic-Medical-Physical Therapy. In order to ensure the patient experience is the best possible, we recommend all our patients be screened by the medical staff to rule out any red flags or other contraindications. It’s good practice and it’s good for improving the patient’s experience and guiding them on their Path to Wellness.
Zayere graduated from Walden University in 2015 as a Golden Key Honor Society, Sigma Theta Tau, and summa cum laude. She is an accredited Family Nurse Practitioner-Board Certified (FNP-BC) through the American Nurses Credentialing Center or ANCC. She began her career working in integrative medicine and then transferred into Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, a medical specialty (also called “physiatry”) that aims to improve health, restore functional ability, reduce pain and enhance quality of life for individuals with physical impairments or disabilities.
She spent a little over four years working in depth in rehabilitation medicine and all aspects of recovery from various incidents including cerebrovascular accident (CVA) or stroke, joint replacement, disease process exacerbation and more. Nurse “Boots” has also worked in pain management, helping those with chronic pain manage their day to day life not only with medication but also with therapy and modalities to achieve the best result.
“I care very deeply for my patients and have been told I have an excellent bedside manner. I have also been told I am very good at translating medical into a language anyone can understand so I can better empower my patients to take an active part in their own health and wellness,” said Zayere.
Her medical background as a Registered Nurse includes serving as a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) nurse with some significant time as a pediatric psychiatry nurse. Azarina is a country girl from the Big Sky country of Montana transplanted in the Great State of Texas since 2010. She has her own small farm and is constantly working towards being able to live off the land. She shared, “I believe very much in the power of understanding the food we eat and what it ate before we eat is as it impacts our health, wellness and the disease process. This speaks to both plant as well as animals.”
“I am very excited to become a part of the Path to Wellness family and look forward to helping medically in any way I can!”, nurse Zayere.
