Sandra Estrada, ARNP, FNP-BC
My focus as a Family Nurse Practitioner is to provide excellence in healthcare through the education of the individual and the family to empower them to make informed decisions to improve and maintain health.
Why The Doctors Clinic:
It has been my dream to move to the Pacific Northwest for over 30 years. I came to visit very dear friends in the area and network in anticipation of moving after my youngest daughter graduated from high school. It was through those same friends, who were acquainted with and highly regarded Dr. Rubenstein, that I had the opportunity to interview with TDC. After meeting Dr. Rubenstein, and others in leadership at TDC, it was clear to me that longevity of employment was a common characteristic and this was because TDC is a wonderful organization to work for. I have encountered so much warmth and professionalism in individuals I have met. Also, being a provider-owned group would offer me more autonomy to practice to my full ability in the care of patients with neurological disorders.
