Three CRNPs Join St. Luke’s Monroe Family Practice

Bethlehem, PA (8/3/2016)St. Luke’s University Health Network proudly welcomes three well known and popular Pocono-area Certified Registered Nurse Practitioners to the St. Luke’s Monroe Family Practice, 1619 N. 9th St., Stroudsburg, where they join John Brinker, DO and Bruce Davis, MD.

The office is the new second location for Monroe Family Practice. The primary location remains at 1803 West Main Street in Stroudsburg.

Dolsie Allen, William Gregg, and Antonette “Anne” Romanowski, who together have more than 50 years’ active experience in the Pocono region, bring their collective skills to St. Luke’s Monroe Family Practice in Bartonsville.

“Bill, Dolsie and I have all worked together for almost 18 years in the same family practice,” Romanowski said. “We have been with these families for multiple generations. We know them and they know us. I love caring for our families. We see everyone from the great grandparents to the great grandchildren.”

Antonette “Anne” Romanowski, CRNP

Antonette “Anne” Romanowski, CRNP Romanowski earned her Master of Science in Nursing from Misericordia University in Dallas, PA. She also earned a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from East Stroudsburg University and an Associate’s degree from Queensboro Community College.

She has 20 years of experience in family practice, and previously served a similar amount of time in emergency room and trauma center care.

She also co-founded “The Lucy Fund,” a non-profit that helps fund metastatic breast cancer research, is a former speaker for the Pocono Leadership Prayer Breakfast and is a past winner of the Nurse Practitioner of the Year from the Pocono Association of Nurse Practitioners & Advanced Practice Nurses.

In her spare time, Romanowski and her husband, who have three children and seven grandchildren, enjoy kayaking and traveling to national parks

William Gregg, CRNP

William Gregg, CRNP Gregg earned a Master of Science in Nursing from Misericordia University, and a Bachelor’s degree from the College of Staten Island, CUNY. He also holds a Master of Military Science, Operations, from Air University, Maxwell Air Force Base, Georgia, and is Chief Flight Nurse in the Air Force Reserve.

Gregg began his career in emergency medicine, and then transitioned to ICU work before embracing family practice.

“Seeing our patients grow all the way from being youngsters to college and beyond is a special feeling,” he said. “It’s the whole package of treatment and care. We get to see the whole person.”

Gregg is married and has two sons who are college students. When not in the office he serves as a Lt. Col. and Chief Flight Nurse in the Air Force Reserve. He enjoys spending time with his family and friends in outdoors and traveling.

Dolsie Allen, CRNP

Dolsie Allen, CRNP Allen earned a Bachelor of Science in Critical Care Nursing from the State University of New York at Buffalo, and Master of Nursing Education from Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ. She successfully completed post-Masters studies in Adult Nurse Practitioner, Cardio-Pulmonary Tract at Seton Hall, and Family Nurse Practitioner, Pediatric and Women’s Health from Misericordia University.

“I love taking care of patients and the one-on-one interaction,” Allen said. “It’s important to spend time with our patients, listen to them and give them our time and complete attention.”

Allen began her career as a critical care nurse and worked with cardiac patients. During that time, she learned the importance of treating the underlying problems of patients like diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol in order to prevent cardiac issues. She went on to teach that region’s first Nurse Practitioner courses offered in England when she lived there.

“It’s a lot easier to prevent heart disease than to try and fix it after an event,” she said. “Heart disease is the No. 1 killer, and a lot of what we do is blood pressure, cholesterol and diabetes screening, and those are all treatable.” When not working, Allen enjoys spending time with her family. She is in the midst of helping plan the wedding for one of her four children.

All three Certified Registered Nurse Practitioners have already joined St. Luke’s Monroe Family Practice, 1619 N. 9th St., Bartonsville, 570-664-8900.
