Erika Franco, N.P.

Nurse Practitioner

“There’s nothing quite like the feeling of giving a patient the attention and care they deserve.”

Erika is a board-certified Nurse Practitioner who proudly serves patients from the community by providing quality patient care in both the office and operating room. Prior to becoming a Nurse Practitioner, she worked as a Registered Nurse in the operating room where she grew her passion for the operating room working in various specialties. After working closely with Dr. Nayyar in the operating room for several years and having firsthand experience as a former collegiate athlete, Erika decided to further her education to become a Family Nurse Practitioner by obtaining her Masters of Science degree to become a Family Nurse Practitioner so that she could provide care to people of all ages. Having a surgical and athletic background, she understands what patients endure and need during both treatment and rehabilitation and strives to meet those needs with compassion and professionalism at all times. Her passion is educating and serving her patients and being a part of their journey to recovery by closely monitoring their progress and being there to help them every step of the way as they return back to a healthy quality of life.
