Phyliis Sim,FNP-C

 

As a Family Nurse Practitioner, Phyllis A. Sim brings empathy, an easy going communication style and a sweet sense of humor, making it easy for her to talk to patients and family members. Phyllis has over 40 years of nursing, including 10 years in the Emergency Department, 7 of which at Grant Medical Center, a Class 1 Trauma Center in downtown Columbus, Ohio. She then decided to go back to school to receive her Masters of Science Nursing Degree and become a Board Certified Advance Practice Nurse Practitioner in Ohio. She graduated from Otterbein University in Westerville,Ohio,Suma Cum Laude in June 2008. She went to work for a well respected physician, who at 70 years of age, still made house calls in rural Knox County Ohio, which is what attracted Phyllis to ER2YOU!

The aging population is so great in SW Florida, it makes sense to visit and treat patients in their homes, just like the old time country doctors. Phyllis also started the first Nurse Practitioner owned and operated Walk In Clinc LLC in Ohio, which she ran for over 7 years before selling her practice and relocating to SW Florida in May of 2018. Phyllis will see Family Practice patients in their place of residence, where they feel safe and secure, can be heard wthout interruption, and treated with the skill and compassion they deserve.
