Priscilla Carey, NP-C, joins Adventist Health Medical Office - Selma


Patients in Selma and the surrounding communities now have access to specialty care at Adventist Health Medical Office – Selma, with the addition of certified nurse practitioner Priscilla Carey, NP-C. Carey specializes in adult and gerontology health with a focus on complex, chronic and end-of-life care, and treats conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, heart failure and chronic kidney disease.

Carey was inspired to specialize in gerontology because of her own aging grandparents.

“I want to be a good example of how increasing quality of life with good healthcare management can extend

time with loved ones,” said Carey.

“As a nurse practitioner, I continue to feel the same way and hope I can reach those individuals by providing the best care possible in all stages of life,” continued Carey. “I believe mutual respect, trust and great communication are key ingredients between a healthcare provider and patient, in order to provide quality care and management long-term.”

Board-certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioner National Certification Board, Carey earned a Master of Science in Nursing, with a specialization in adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioner, from South University in Savannah, Georgia. Additionally, she holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Tamaulipas in Mexico, as well as a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio. Carey also is fluent in both English and Spanish.

With a mother who is an “amazing cook” as a life-long example, Carey loves to cook and calls it an outlet for creating, experimenting and stress relief. She also enjoys visiting galleries and museums with her husband, who is an artist, spending time with family, exercising, watching movies and reading.

Carey is accepting new patients and may be reached at Adventist Health Medical Office – Selma, 1041 Rose Ave., in Selma. More information and appointments are available by calling 559-856-6090 or visiting
