While Isabel Munera knew since childhood that medicine was her calling, it was years after her passion took hold that she discovered her love of women's health. "During nursing school, I discovered my love for women's health," Isabel shared. "I knew I wanted to work directly with patients and integrate my holistic background with the medical diagnosis and treatment of patients. Women's health was the field that allowed me to do that best."
Isabel worked as a labor and delivery nurse for five years before joining Novant Health. "I love the staff and the teamwork among the providers here," she said. "That benefits our patients greatly."
Patients also benefit great from Isabel's language skills; she speaks fluent Spanish and serves as a certified interpreter for our office. If you speak Spanish and would be more comfortable receiving medical information in this language, let us know when you make your appointment and we will make every effort to have Isabel available during your visit.
Everyday gynecologic concerns are some of Isabel's favorite issues to handle. "I enjoy helping patients with common gynecologic problems such as vaginal infections, breast problems and menopausal symptoms," she said. "I also enjoy educating young women about contraception."
When she is not working, Isabel is most likely spending time with her husband, Ricardo and their young daughter. "We love traveling and cooking together, and of course caring for our baby girl, Sophia!" she shared.
