About Lauren Golfer, NP


Lauren Golfer is a board-certified Women's Health Nurse Practitioner with a passion for caring for the whole patient. Her approach is informed by a belief in a strong patient-provider relationship. Her focuses include gynecologic disease management, family planning, trauma, and LGBTQ care.
