Cyndi Desmond, ARNP
I joined SFM in 2006 and am now a member of the team at the Puyallup Sunrise location. I see my main role as a patient advocate, helping patients negotiate the complex health care system and make informed decisions about their own health care. Being able to connect closely with many generations of the same family is another reward.
I became a nurse in 1983, seeing it as a way to combine my love of speaking Spanish as a second language with my desire to help others.
I received both my RN and ARNP training at Pace University in New York City. In 1996, my family and I relocated from New York City to Pierce County. Since becoming a registered nurse practitioner I have enjoyed the variety of medical challenges that I encounter daily.
Sound Family Medicine at Sunrise is a wonderful place to work, both because of the natural beauty of the setting and because of the camaraderie and high skill level of all of the staff. I am fluent in Spanish and am gradually building a Hispanic patient base. My hobbies include cross-country skiing, canoeing, and training my soft coated-wheaten terriers.
See what her patients had to say:
- “Cyndi was awesome. She was very engaging, had great bedside manner and she explained everything to me so that I had better understanding. Will definitely recommend Cyndi and Sound Family Medicine to my co-workers and family.” – Kristy
- “It was reassuring that the provider took the time to talk through my history and then try to figure out my symptoms based on things that had been done. She also took the time to explain scenarios. She also seemed to legitimately care about the pain I was in. It was nice to be listened too and cared for!” – Laurie
