Kristin Gustin, MSN FNP, started with Millenium Group in November of last year, after having been with Lee Memorial for 10 years, prior to making the jump to the island and the Millennium Physician Group.
Gustin received her master’s degree in science of nursing at the University of South Florida and has over 10 years of experience in an array of specialties including cardiology, pulmonology and urology.
Gustin has a passion for helping others, especially those in need. Put simply, she admits her passion for helping other people is what led her to where she is now.
“I’m actually known for going to my patient’s houses, on the island, just because they needed something. I’ve had patients who couldn’t make it in, so I’d go to their houses. I just love people, actually, and the island people are my favorite,” Gustin said.
Gustin describes traveling to her patient’s homes to help with everything from teaching them to use needed medical equipment, to the simple act of assistance applying ointment. She’s even made her own pain reliever, she said, in the hopes that it helps with arthritic discomfort.
“I really focus on preventative care. I want to prevent you from becoming sick,” Gustin said.
In addition to the hometown feel she enjoys about Pine Island, Gustin likes getting to know the entire aspect of her patient’s lives and wellbeing. Even on days she isn’t scheduled to work, she feels an innate responsibility to keep in contact with her patients, who she describes as having come to be like her family.
“Focusing on adult preventative care and wellness, I’m going to care for patients and their family–respect them and their decisions,” Gustin said.
