Bridget Gharst, FNP-C
As a nurse practitioner, my philosophy is fundamentally centered around the idea of partnership within patient care. My goal is to continually form strong relationships with each patient in order to help diagnose and treat the individual as a whole.
Bridget had seven years of pediatric operating room experience prior to becoming a nurse practitioner in 2016. She then worked as a nurse practitioner at a pediatric hospital in Kansas City, Missouri for three years. While there, Bridget cared for patients ranging from infants to young adults with a variety of ENT-related issues.
Bridget likes living in Portland because of the proximity to the coast and the mountains, with any type of outdoor activity imaginable.
When not working, Bridget enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters. They like hiking, trying new restaurants, and traveling. Being born and raised in Kansas, her family are also die-hard Kansas City Chief fans and try to make it back for a few home games each season.
