Registered Nurse, Katie Miszuk, brings years of nursing expertise to Dermatology Associates of Rochester. Katie is a certified laser nurse and is on the Plastic Surgery Team. She loves performing different procedures and has enjoyed working closely with Dr. Weitz and Dr. Young: learning their approach to achieving our patients’ cosmetic goals from lasers to cosmetic surgery.
Katie Miszuk spent 11 years working as a Registered Nurse in intensive care with critically ill patients in the hospital. There she was responsible for mechanical ventilation, titration, mixing of IV medications, and helping families to cope with the illness of their loved ones. Katie then moved over to the Vascular access team where she would assess patients’ needs for IV access and collaborate with the physicians on what would be the best type of access and then place the most appropriate line. Including Central lines, PICCs, Midlines, and peripheral IV. After working on the team for years she was promoted to manager of the Vascular access team managing a group of 8 nurses caring for the vascular needs of a 325-bed facility.
“I absolutely love taking care of patients and being there for people at their hardest times. I have wanted to be a nurse since I was young and have felt a great sense of gratitude for helping others. I have had the opportunity to work with patients and families at one of the hardest moments of their life and to be able to make that moment a little easier means I have accomplished my goal.” she says.
Katie is married to her husband Bill and they have two boys Jack and Connor. They love hiking, swimming, going to the beach, and being outdoors.
