Regina Mills, APRN-CNP, has worked in medical oncology (cancer care) since 2008. She chose to focus her career on this area because of a personal experience. “I had a grandmother with stage IV thyroid cancer who I cared for during the last year of her life,” she said. “I saw how the medical oncology providers took care of her and I knew I wanted to make a difference in others’ lives as they had made in mine.”
When caring for patients, Mrs. Mills treats people as she would want her own family treated. “Working in medical oncology requires a heightened level of compassion and dedication to patients,” she said. “The nature of the diseases I treat makes the relationships I build with patients and their families very important. A career in medical oncology involves just as much passion as it does experience.”
When teaching people how to get healthy, Mrs. Mills encourages them to count on friends and family. “The most important thing I tell my patients is to let others help them in their journey,” she said. “The process can get overwhelming, but having help from other people can make their lives a little easier.”
Mrs. Mills received Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in nursing from Chamberlain College of Nursing in 2018 and 2019, respectively. Prior to joining Utica Park Clinic (UPC) as a nurse practitioner, Mrs. Mills was a registered nurse for UPC medical oncology.
When she is away from the office, Mrs. Mills enjoys spending time with her family, going to the movies, shopping and traveling.
Mrs. Mills welcomes new patients and accepts most insurance plans. Her office is located on the Hillcrest Medical Center campus at:
