At Bluestone I am able to see my patients monthly and can get to know them and their families. Bluestone makes providing excellent health care more timely and more rewarding for the patient and practitioner alike.”  -Dr. Demery

Elly Bruders, CNP

“As a Nurse Practitioner, my philosophy is to provide compassionate, empathic and
professional care to all those I am privileged to serve. I believe health care is all
about developing relationships through listening and understanding the needs and
goals of both the patient and family. Having personally experienced walking with a
mom who suffered from dementia, I know the challenges and gifts that come along
the way. I love the geriatric population and the opportunity to listen to their stories,
wisdom and life experiences.” -Elly Bruders, FNP-C
