Variety Care Adds Two New Health Care Providers

Oklahoma City, OK – Variety Care is proud to welcome two new providers to their family medicine department. New providers are expanding access to quality, affordable health care across two Variety Care locations.

 Deniese Aska-Brown, APRN-CNP, is a family medicine provider with a passion for providing care to underserved communities. After completing her bachelor’s at Southwestern Oklahoma State University, she continued her education and obtained her post-master’s degree from Maryville University in 2020. Aska-Brown says she chose a career in healthcare because she wanted to be a caregiver.  “I want to inspire each patient and their family to practice self-care, which spans from physical and emotional to psychological and spiritual care,” Aska-Brown explained.

Aska-Brown is now accepting patients at Variety Care Britton.

 Nissy Mathew, MSN, APRN, FNP-C, is a provider who believes educating patients is the key to preventative healthcare. After completing her bachelor’s in nursing from Oklahoma City University, she continued her education and obtained her Master of Science in Nursing degree from the University of Cincinnati in 2015. Mathew emphasized, “I love Variety Care’s ability to provide comprehensive care to its patients.”

Mathew is now accepting patients at Variety Care Reno.
