Lynn Hoth, a certified family nurse practitioner, believes that patient and provider are partners in the management of health care. "I place emphasis on health promotion and patient education so my patients are informed about health or disease," she says. "I feel that the more one is informed, the better prepared they will be to take an active role in their own health care."
After completing her master's degree in nursing at the University of California, San Francisco, Lynn became a clinical specialist in pulmonary and renal nursing. She completed her post-master's program for specialization as a family nurse practitioner at Washington State University.
Away from her practice, Lynn enjoys the many forms of outdoor recreation here on the north Oregon coast.
