Our visitor program is a very important function of the OAA. Individuals who have had stoma surgery are specially trained to visit new ostomates in the hospital, at home, or by phone to answer questions about ostomy-related issues. Visitors must be requested by a physician, an Enterostomal Therapy nurse, the patient or patient's family.


Our OAA Nurses: Karen Hollis, Linda Burks, Carole Marshall-Hanson
