“I am eager to empower patients with the knowledge to maintain healthy living through good eating, exercise, and regular self-breast checks. I’m also committed to emphasizing the importance of regular screening mammograms, recognizing that early detection saves lives,” said Metzgar.

Metzgar is a Certified Registered Nurse Practitioner, board certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. She obtained her Master of Science in Nursing from Chamberlain University and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Grand Canyon University.
