Nurse Practitioner

Kristen Shields

Kristen is the newest member of the Wellcare Medical Family. Kristen grew up exposed to family members who practiced both Chiropractic and traditional medicine. She always wondered if there was a way to combine the best of what both fields have to offer, and is now excited to integrate both of these specialties into helping patients.

Kristen is now available to augment the Chiropractic care at Wellcare with her abilities to perform knee injections and trigger point injections. She is able to offer both Viscosupplementation injections and Platelet Rich Plasma injections for knees, along with treatment for those pesky trigger points. Kristen is always ready and willing to learn new things, so stay tuned for additional procedures to be added in the future!

Kristen has been a Nurse Practitioner since 2015 with experience in Emergency Medicine, internal Medicine, Urgent Care, and Primary Care. Prior to becoming a Nurse Practitioner, she spent her early nursing years working as an ER nurse at Allegheny General Hospital. Kristen prides herself in taking time with each patient, exploring treatment options, and ensuring that each patient is treated like family. In her time outside of work, Kristen enjoys outside activities, cheering on any Pittsburgh sports team, and traveling. Her favorite activity is probably spoiling her two Morkies, Bailey and Riley, who you may see from time to time at the office!
