Cincinnati GI is glad to welcome Shannon Horvath as our new Nurse Practitioner for Dr. David Hess and Dr. Stephen Ionna. Shannon has 13 years of experience in the GI field, working with Dr. Hess and Ionna as a Registered Nurse at Endoscopy Center West and The Christ Hospital in their endoscopy unit. Also, she worked as a nurse for Cincinnati GI, so when she completed her training as a Nurse Practitioner it was a perfect fit to have her join the staff as a Certified Nurse Practitioner. She is focused on providing individual care to every patient she sees. In this electronic world we live in, medical treatment has advanced but it is not a substitute for the one on one patient care that she will be providing.
