Jenni Mincoff is a board certified and state-licensed nurse practitioner who works with Dr. Brendel to help patients find pain relief. Jenni has been in healthcare for nearly 10 years. Much of her career focused on family practice, maternity care and urgent care, so she brings a broad perspective to pain management and considers the whole patient when providing care.
My favorite part of being a health care provider is seeing patients leave their office with smiles on their faces. They all come in with a lot of pain and with fear and worry in their eyes. There is nothing more fulfilling than working to help people feel better.
When you first work with Jenni, she’ll talk with you about your situation. She knows that anxiety and fear are often big parts of being in pain, so she will try to put you at ease. She’ll ask questions and will take time to listen. If you haven’t had testing recently, she may request some scans CTs or MRIs can help find out what is truly going on. When she and Dr. Brendel have a clear picture of your situation, they will work with you to create a treatment plan designed to provide real relief.
At Interventional Pain Specialists of Wisconsin, Jenni will sometime meet with new patients to determine the next steps before those patients meet with Dr. Brendel. She also sees current patients to check up on their progress after procedures.
Collaboration is at the heart of Jenni’s patient care philosophy. Shee and Dr. Brendel collaborate with each other and other medical providers to deliver the most medically appropriate care possible. Their network includes orthopedic surgeons, neurosurgeons, psychologists, physical therapists, primary care physicians and chiropractors. Together, they work to get to the bottom of what is causing a patient’s pain, physically and psychologically.
Collaboration also involves the patient. Jenni sees a large part of any patient’s success tied to the patient’s willingness to take an active part in their healthcare.
“My hope is that each individual patient will be able to live their best life possible.” –Jenni Mincoff, FNP
