Nicole L. Stephens, PA-C, ATC
Physician Assistant - Cardiology
I enjoy educating patients on their specific cardiac illness and reassuring each individual that their concerns are heard. My philosophy is a patient-first approach in which decisions are made mutually between each patient and the provider. I treat general cardiac illnesses, including coronary artery disease, heart failure, arrhythmias, and valvular heart disease. Outside of work, I enjoy hiking in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, playing pickle ball, and traveling with my family and friends.
Ratings and Reviews
The Patient Rating score is an average of all responses to care provider related questions on our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Learn more about our survey process. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score. Patients who see some types of providers receive a different version of the patient satisfaction survey. Those results are not available on DukeHealth.org.
