Alison Griffin, NP-C completed her undergraduate studies in 2008 at Stony Brook University on Long Island (NY). She earned a dual Bachelors degree in both Psychology and Nursing. She then went onto practice as a Registered Nurse while earning her Masters in Adult-Gerontology advanced nursing practice, also at Stony Brook University. She was awarded her NP-C in 2014 and has been practicing as a Nurse Practitioner (NP) since that time.
Alison spent her time as an RN practicing general and emergency medicine. After earning her Masters she then transitioned into her role as an NP, since that time Alison’s goal has been to provide uncompromising, passionate, holistic care to assist her patients in identifying their healthcare needs and achieve their healthcare goals.
Alison has spent her early years as a NP gaining valuable experience in Primary Medicine. “I have had the opportunity to work with so many amazing Doctors, Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants and I have gained so much valuable experience working in both the outpatient and inpatient environments. However, with all that I have learned, I have unfortunately also identified many gaps in our current medical environment”. Through her experience, Alison has seen that ever increasing demands placed on the primary care provider leaves both the patient and the provider yearning for more. “My hope here is to practice medicine as it was meant to be practiced. I would like to get to know each of my patients and create that special connection that will allow me to provide the kind of care that is necessary to make true, positive, long lasting changes and allow the patient to experience both improved mental and physical health”.
Here at Manalapan Spine Care, Alison will be providing a variety of options for holistic pain control and overall improved quality of life. Alison hopes to expand her practice here and offer additional services going forward.
“My hope is that each client we encounter can gain the confidence they need to take back control over their health and make the positive changes necessary to experience their best reality”.
In addition to growing her career over the past 10 years, Alison has also simultaneously grew her family, Alison lives in Marlboro, NJ and stays busy with her husband, four young children and two Goldendoodles!
