She is especially interested in helping patients practice a healthy lifestyle to prevent disease. She also enjoys helping patients with diabetes or hypertension to learn to better manage their conditions.

The clinic is a multidisciplinary clinic that was established for patients who suffer from acute or chronic pain.

In recent years, Roberts-Mitchell has used a multidisciplinary approach that has included exercise, weight loss, physical therapy, trigger point and large joint injections and medication to care for patients with acute or chronic pain syndromes. She also evaluates patients to determine if they are candidates for interventional therapy to include transforaminal injections, spinal cord stimulator and intrathecal pain pump.

“I feel privileged to care for patients and blessed to get to know them as a people. I also love helping patients get back to functioning in daily life,” she said.

She is particularly interested in research of the genetics of pain management.

Roberts-Mitchell earned a master’s degree in physician assistant studies and internal medicine from University of Nebraska Medical School. She also is a retired captain of the U.S. Air Force.

She comes to the clinic with experience working with patients with acute and chronic gastrointestinal problems. Her background also includes working in primary care, bariatrics as well as long-term and rehabilitation care.

As a provider, she takes pride in being a problem-solver and someone who can give patients options to choose regarding their care in a language they can understand.

“I want patients to know that they are not alone, they have found a person they can trust and can talk to and that I will always have their best interests at heart,” she said.

Shellenbarger is especially interested in research of the physical and psychological impact of gastroenterology on patients. She earned a doctor of nursing practice degree from University of Colorado Health Sciences in Denver and a master’s of science degree in the family nurse practitioner program at Clarkson College in Omaha, Neb.
