West Essex OB/GYN Associates is pleased to announce the addition of our new associate, Stephanie Allocca, who is a fully licensed and accredited Nurse Practitioner. Following our extensive search for a clinician who can help extend our practice and better serve our patients’ needs, we are confident that we have made the right choice.
Stephanie has more than ten years of experience in nursing, both in hospital and office settings. She has been dedicated to providing excellent patient care and has been meeting the challenge in attending to the entirety of each patient’s medical needs. Stephanie earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing in 2005 from Quinnipiac University and began her career as a registered nurse at Hackensack University Medical Center.
After many years of caring for patients as a medical-surgical nurse, Stephanie decided to further her education. She obtained her Master’s degree, thus pursuing her passion to become a women’s healthcare provider. Stephanie graduated in 2014 from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, with a Masters in Nursing with a focus in Women’s Health.
Stephanie is a warm, compassionate and knowledgeable clinician with over eighteen months’ experience as a Nurse Practitioner. We feel that she will be a wonderful compliment to our clinical care team. Stephanie’s special interests and skills are well suited to serve the needs of our patient population with contraceptive counseling, menstrual regulation, adolescent adjustment, postmenopausal issues and cervical cancer screening.
Stephanie resides in Morris County with her husband Anthony and their young son. When she is not practicing, Stephanie enjoys being with her family, traveling and relaxing on the beach.
Stephanie is excited to join our practice and feels that this is the beginning of the fulfillment of a long-standing dream. We are indeed pleased to have Stephanie as part of our team. She will begin seeing patients in our office starting on November 1, 2016.
