I'm the nurse practitioner that works very closely with Dr. Patrick O'Donnell. When patients are scheduled to see us at Markey Cancer Center, they're either scheduled with Dr. O'Donnell or me. We place a high priority on getting patients seen quickly. We know that when a patient has a cancer diagnosis, they're very upset and we want them to be seen as quickly as possible. When Dr. O'Donnell is in the operating room, patients are booked with me so that we can facilitate any treatment that they need as soon as possible.
Our team approach helps patients by providing them comprehensive care, not only for their physical problems, but also for all the emotional aspects that go along with a cancer diagnosis. It affects not only the patient, but the patient's family as well. One of the reasons I enjoy this job is because I'm able to make a difference.

Nurse Profitt is great -- probably the best I've encountered at any position at UK Health and I am generally very satisfied with doctors, physical therapists, and nurses. She is extremely easy to ask questions of and gives clear and honest advice. After the visit I think I have a much better understanding of options for treatment (arthritic knees) than I had before. I did have problems getting an early appointment when needed going through the system but Nurse Profitt told me how I could get in to see her and gave me her card with a direct contact number.
Excellent overall! *Tracy went out of her way to schedule my next visit prior to a trip I'll be taking in Sept. *Connie answered all my questions when I called.
Excellent at giving a knee injection.Are you happy with the care you received from this provider?
