OKLAHOMA CITY (March 2, 2015) – As a born problem solver, Anna Cottle chose a career in medicine in hopes of relieving suffering for patients.
Cottle brings that passion for her patients to her new role as a nurse practitioner at Mercy Clinic Gastroenterology in Oklahoma City.
“I establish a rapport with my patients very early in our relationship so patients feel like they can be open and honest about their medical issues without having to hide things or be self-protective,” said Cottle. “It also allows me to speak frankly when necessary. My patients trust me to treat them with compassion and a motivating honesty.”
Cottle received her bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, and her master’s degree in nursing from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. She previously worked as a nurse in an emergency room and a nurse practitioner in a family practice clinic.
In her spare time, Cottle enjoys running each morning, remodeling her house and spending time with her husband and two young daughters.
Mercy Clinic Gastroenterology is located at 4200 W. Memorial Road, Suite 901, in Oklahoma City, and can be reached at 405-749-4247.
