CORVALLIS — Heather McLean, FNP-C, has joined the Internal Medicine Department at The Corvallis Clinic in North Albany To schedule an appointment, call 541-926-3441; to request an appointment online, go to New Patient Appointment Request.
As a primary care nurse practitioner, Ms. McLean treats and coordinates care for adults with acute and chronic complex conditions – such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer – and promotes preventive health measures.
A Certified Family Nurse Practitioner by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, Ms. McLean comes to The Clinic from Salem Health Medical Group, in Salem. She has also practiced in Salem at Boulder Creek Clinic-WVP Medical Group from 2015 to 2017 and Cascade Cardiology from 2008 to 2014.
Ms. McLean says she wants patients to feel at ease with her and to know that she is invested in them personally as well as in their health.
“When faced with a health problem, some people can be frightened and feel overwhelmed. They seek answers. Sometimes, the best answer is to be present and to partner with them on their journey as they try to improve their overall health and well-being. I consider it an honor and a privilege to form a relationship with patients and be a part of their lives.”
She earned Master of Nursing in 2008 from Oregon Health Sciences University, where she also earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing in 2004. She earned an Associate Degree in Nursing from Chemeketa Community College, in Salem, in 1990.
