About Angela Drewniak
Ms. Drewniak has a wide array of acute care and critical care experience. She believes that nursing care should be patient-centered. Her many years of experience has led her to being a wealth of knowledge for her patients. Her goal is that her patients can be proactive with their own care, which in turn, makes the patient set goals and, hopefully, achieve them.
She is focusing, currently, on treatment/management of chronic pain. Her population is varied from poor to wealthy, with an array of medical issues. Pain management is the need to keep people active as possible, even with their chronic pains. Multi-disciplinary approaches are taken to help manage pain, including the use of PT, aquaPT, medications, eastern medicine techniques (acupuncture, etc.) as well as medical cannabis, and many more.
Drewniak completed her Bachelor’s degree in Nursing at Simmons College in Boston, MA in 2001.
She completed her Masters of Nursing degree with an Acute Care specialty at the University of Texas, Houston in 2008.
