Dr. Sofia Eyakem, DNP, FNP (aka Dr. E)
Hi! I am Dr. Sofia Eyakem, DNP, FNP (aka Dr. E). I am medical director and family nurse practitioner here at HighPoint Health Center. I am a graduate of Rutgers University School of Nursing. Doctoral prepared board-certified family nurse practitioner with specialty experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Additional diversified background in primary care, critical care and pain management. More than two decades of experience in the healthcare industry with managerial role in leadership experiences that include management, scheduling, and oversight of large groups of physicians, nurses and nurse practitioners in both office and hospital settings. Experienced as a clinical preceptor and as adjunct nursing faculty.
I am so honored to work alongside Dr. Schick and a great team of providers and staff! I provide compassionate care to all my patients of all ages. I enjoy taking care of patients and their family. I have chosen to become a family nurse practitioner because I can combine nursing and medicine to provide a higher level of care to my patients. As a nurse practitioner, I am able to make an impact on my patients’ health through health promotion, disease prevention, managing acute and chronic conditions and improving patient health. Seeing my patients improve physically and mentally is extremely rewarding.
When I am alone, I enjoy going for long walks with my amazing dog Ziggy, practice meditation, cooking Ethiopian food and listening to music. I look forward to continuously serving your health needs, honoring your choices and working together towards better health and wellness.
