General Surgery Nurse Practitioner
Shelly Auerbach, NP, received her Bachelor and Master of Nursing from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia. Shelly formerly practiced at TPMG Urology and rejoins us at TPMG General Surgery and Hernia Center in Newport News.
With over 20 years in the nursing field, Shelly has advanced along the way, transitioning from a certified nursing assistant (CNA) and a licensed practical nurse (LPN) to a certified nurse practitioner (NP). In each of these roles, Shelly’s outgoing and confident personality has helped put her patients at ease. She has gained eight years of clinical experience as a nurse practitioner doing what she loves – performing advanced assessments and diagnoses, managing inpatient and outpatient consultations, and providing staff and patient education. Shelly also has special interests in providing wound and ostomy education.
At TPMG General Surgery and Hernia Center, Shelly treats patients of all ages for conditions such as gallbladder disease and hemorrhoids, which require general surgery for treatment. She also treats patients requiring hernia repair. Shelly would like her patients to know that “surgery does not need to be an uncertain or scary time.” With all of the resources available to TPMG’s skilled surgeons, pre-op and post-op care can be a very simple and smooth process.
Shelly spent her childhood as an army brat, but her dad retired here in the Hampton Roads area. She enjoys spending her free time with her family and her pets. Shelly is a dog lover and an avid reader.
