“I am passionate about urgent care because it allows me to treat the whole patient and diagnose and manage a variety of health concerns for all age groups. I have always enjoyed this type of specialty because it keeps me well-rounded.”

Cress is a board-certified family nurse practitioner. He focuses on urgent care and acute care.

Having been an emergency room nurse prior to his career as a family nurse practitioner, Cress has always enjoyed a fast-paced work environment and seeing a variety of medical conditions that keep him on his toes, which he feels makes work enjoyable.

Cress received his master’s degree in nursing at Simmons University. 

Outside of work, he enjoys being outdoors, hiking, golfing, skydiving, snowboarding and spending time with his wife and their dog, Milo. He is a huge Philadelphia sports fan and loves watching the Eagles, Phillies, 76ers and Flyers.
