Sarah Scott, ARNP, has started seeing patients at Advanced Family Medicine in Webster City. She is a Hamilton County native from Ellsworth.
"As a little kid, I dressed up as one every year for Halloween," she said. "My great aunt was an OB nurse in Webster City for more than 40 years. I wanted to be like her because she loved her job so much."
Scott said that she was glad to be back in Hamilton County.
"I really like taking care of people," she said. "And I wanted to be more involved with my patients' care.
"I enjoy the people in the area. They are down to earth and friendly."
After working in a hospital setting, Scott knew she wanted to transition to an area in nursing where she could have more time to talk with patients.
"It has been nice," she said. "This is a family-oriented practice, where I can sit down and be able to listen to my patient and their needs."
Advanced Family Medicine is located at 903 Willson Avenue.
