Julie Townsend, FNP

Tucson, AZ

“I love the variety of patients I care for. My approach is to explain the issues and help them make the decisions. A Family Nurse Practitioner treats their patients with care, compassion and a lot of love. Family Nurse Practitioners give patients the tools and then help them use them, if they choose.”

About Me

I am Julie Townsend. I have been an RN for 50 years and a FNP for 20 years. My partner and I designed Old Pueblo Healthcare. Three years ago, I was very fortunate to have Optima Medical acquire OPHC. It has enabled us to give the quality of care and testing that is required in today’s health care.
