Nurse Practitioner

Lisa Tabenken is a board-certified adult nurse practitioner, board-certified women’s healthcare nurse practitioner, and a registered nurse with additional certification. She works in the preadmission area of the OA Surgery Center, performing histories and physicals and preparing patients for outpatient surgery. She has been with OA since 2011.

“I think that one of the most satisfying things about my work is helping to ease the anxiety that some patients can feel about impending surgery. By listening carefully to my patient’s concerns and explaining the surgical process in terms that the patient can understand, I can play a role in achieving a positive outcome and return to optimal function.”
