Patti Matalone, R.N.
Patti Matalone, R.N. works currently as the Nursing Manager of Holistic Medical Services, Inc. She has been a Registered Nurse since 1985; she started her career in the Emergency Department at DeKalb Medical Center and worked there for 25 years, and for the last 10 years was a charge nurse. Over the past 13 years Patti has dedicated herself to Integrative and Holistic Medicine. She has experiences in trauma nursing, pediatrics, acute cardiac events, strokes, critical care, behavior health, as well as many other emergencies, urgent and non-urgent care.
Patti’s duties in the office involve every aspect of patient care: treatments and procedures, patient
education, staff training, protocol updates; all are within her realm of expertise. She is very active in self-learning and is passionate about sharing her knowledge. Patti often attends conferences on a wide variety of topics which include, Nutritional IV therapies, Cancer updates, Ozone use, LDA, Pain Management, Functional Medicine, as well as the American Academy of Environmental Medicine and International College of Integrative Medicine earlier this year. As well as her attendance to these conferences, she has also maintained BLS, ACLS, TNCC, PALS, and Critical Care certifications.
Patti’s love for others goes beyond her career. She believes in helping others and has participated in two Medical Missionary trips. Her first missions’ trip was to Haiti after the 2010 devastating earthquake. Her home church Victory World Church and her employer partnered together and deployed a team to assist with medical treatments as well as planting several orphanages. Patti admits she was hesitant to go but a week or so later was so touched and blessed to be used as part of the team, she truly was sad to leave. Several years later she participated in a mission trip to Nicaragua. This time she was eager to go and in turn feels like she is the one truly blessed.
