"Experience the Future of Medicine"

Carolyn M. Van de Rostyne, ANP

carolynI am an Advanced Nurse Practitioner with 35 years of experience providing acute primary care, hospital care, and general care. My focus is optimal well being and healthy aging through hormone health and lifestyle awareness. Maintaining healthy hormone levels throughout the lifespan is critical to aging well in terms of heart, brain, bone disease prevention and contributes to an overall sense of well being. Other areas of interest include the emerging realm of peptide therapies, amino acids formulated to mimic or enhance cellular processes that restore and optimize function, and in nutrigenomics, the study of relationships between what we eat and how our genetic profile interacts with input on a molecular level.

I have been in love with Alaska since moving here from Northern Canada, in 1990. I never tire of the beauty that surrounds us, and the endless opportunities Alaska offers us. I have a goal to climb every inch of the Turnagain Arm, and end each hike at the Turnagain Arm Pit BBQ – a family venture my spouse Jack and I started as a hobby 9 years ago.

I am happy to have found a new home with Avante Medical Center, which has provided a healthy team-oriented work environment that is supportive to both its providers and patients alike.

Patient Testimonials

  • "I love going to Avante...they take pride in patient care and are always willing to accommodate... simply the best.."CSL
  • "I have been a patient at Avante for 5 yrs now, and I have only positive things to say about the quality of the care that I receive from the entire facility. From the smiles at the front desk to the efficient lab techs and all of the staff in between. My health has turned around thanks to the care from Kiki Green and Grant Gibbs. Competent, caring and constantly striving for the newest information available to share with me. They embody the best in what I want in Holistic and Modern Medical care - JH 
  • "I came to Avante about 8 months ago when I was looking for a doctor after moving to Alaska, my husband and I saw Dr. Jana.  We were pleased with the office and esp. the care we received from Dr. Jana. It feels good to leave a doctors office not loaded down with lists of new medicines but  positive thoughts of lifestyle changes that will produce better health. I started seeing Tina at the first of November and two days after the first acupuncture treatment I was in the least amount of pain in over 25 years.  Believe me I have tried many different medical treatments some with more success than others.  I am so encouraged to look forward to more mobility and greater health! I feel younger and more energetic. Thank you Avante.  I also love the patient portal and have found that the staff always responds to my online questions." - PM

  • "I have been a patient of Avante's for several years now, and I have only wonderful things to say about their business. The place is beautiful and welcoming, the staff are all very helpful and kind, and the providers, all 3 I have seen, currently Kikki Green and Grant Gibbs, have been intelligent, intuitive and efficient. They care about you and your health. The lab is clean and full service and the nutritional supplements are extensive and high quality. The use of the Patient Portal is outstanding!  Give yourself extra time is my only recommendation as they sometimes get backed up on scheduling." - JH
