Kimberly A. Harris, RN, MSN, FNP
Nurse Practitioner Kimberly Harris graduated from Binghamton
University in New York with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and
earned her Master’s degree from Old Dominion University in
1998. She became board certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner
in 1999 and has been practicing for 12 years, 8 of those in gynecology
and urogynecology with this practice.
Kim has a special interest in adolescent gynecology, STD prevention,
and patient education. Her passion is in empowering young women
to prevent pregnancy when not desired and to practice a healthy
way of living in order to prevent lifelong sexually transmitted
infections and cervical cancer.
“I believe every woman needs to know that she has the power
to prevent unintended pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases,
and even cervical cancer,” says Kim. “Women have more
contraceptive options now than ever before, some of which require
less regular thought and planning. We, as women, have the right
and responsibility to make choices that will lead to a healthy,
happy life. I get great satisfaction in teaching women of all ages
how to improve health by empowering them with the knowledge needed
to make those good choices.”
Kim also works closely with Dr. Rebecca Ryder in diagnosing and
treating patients with urinary incontinence. Kim does urodynamic
testing of the bladder and provides pelvic floor rehabilitation
as well as neuromodulation therapy for certain conditions of the
bladder such as Overactive Bladder.
She takes pride in giving patients the time they need to express
their concerns and have their questions answered.
Kim is a married mother of two children. She enjoys photography,
hiking, scrapbooking, and walking with her two dogs. She also loves
traveling with her family to see her favorite team in MLB action.
