Yolanda Dorsey, an Alexandria, Virginia native, joined NVFP in March 2023. Yolanda understands that for many patients, visiting their primary care provider can sometimes be uncomfortable, and even a little scary. She chose a career in healthcare because she enjoys making patients feel better and helping her patients feel safe and comfortable during visits. Other than her growing relationships with the NVFP team, Yolanda enjoys meeting new patients and building positive rapport with each patient. Before joining NVFP, she spent 20-plus years at an Internal Medicine practice and occasionally bumps into old patients and coworkers. Her long-term career goals include working on a quick cookbook guide for “soccer moms on the go,” and those who need quick healthy meals but are short on time. Yolanda shares a “handsome 11-year-old ‘Son­Shine,’” Logan, with her significant other Kevin, who enjoys all things sports. She states that “though he loves his mom dearly, Logan has a super close, undeniable relationship with his father. He is a real daddy’s boy.” Outside of work, she enjoys cooking for her friends and family, entertaining, traveling, and building memories with her family.
