Straight From The Heart Medical Professionals, Inc.  |  Sherry Lee Young

Sherry Lee Young began her career in 1987, entering the medical and mental health fields and lovingly becoming known as Nurse Sherry. She received her degrees in Associates of Applied Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Masters of Science in Nursing, and achieved her Post-Master's Degree, becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2000.

Sherry went on to open the doors of Straight From the Heart Medical Professionals, Inc. in January 2001, establishing herself as one of the first Nurse Practitioners in Arizona to own and operate a full-service family medical practice.

Throughout Sherry's career, she has had extensive employment experience in psychiatry, long-term care, ventilators, substance abuse treatment, telemetry, med-surg, PCCU, emergency room, orthopedics, private duty, family practice, endocrinology, internal medicine, and administration.

Sherry would like to be known as a patient advocate and as a provider who treats the entire spectrum of human life, not limiting herself to specific age groups or areas of treatment. She prefers to treat each individual as a whole, as well as taking into consideration anything which may affect a person's well-being including their physical, social, emotional, and mental needs.
