Qi Si Xue, FNP, Joins Alice Hyde Medical Staff
Family Nurse Practitioner Qi Si Xue is the newest member of the University of Vermont Health Network — Alice Hyde Medical Center (AHMC) Medical Staff. She joins Dimitrina Banu, PA, Nancy Denis, FNP, and Alice Tibbetts, PA, in Alice Hyde Walk-In Clinic, 134 Park Street, Malone, phone number 518-481-2800
Qi Si Xue is a 2019 graduate of the University of Toronto’s Lawrence S. Bloomberg Faculty of Nursing program, where she earned a Master of Nursing in Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioner. She previously worked as a Registered Nurse Clinician at Hawkesbury General Hospital, Hawkesbury, ON, where she served in the Emergency Room and Intensive Care Unit from 2017 – 2019. From 2015 to 2017 she worked as a Registered Nurse Clinician at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, Texas, where she served in the Heart Transplant Intensive Care Unit, with a focus on heart failure and cardiac transplant patients.
“To me it’s all about trust, transparency and mutual respect,” said Qi Si Xue. “The relationship between patients and their health care provider is collaborative, and I work hard to connect with my patients so they know that I always have their best interests at heart. In a rural community, I feel like you have a closer relationship with your patients. You know them and their families, friends and extended family, so you feel more connected to them.”
The team at Alice Hyde Walk-In Clinic treats non-life threatening injuries in an urgent care setting and provides care to children, teens and adults with minor illnesses or injuries who are unable to get an immediate appointment with their primary care doctor, or are visiting the area.

The team treats urgent care conditions including allergic reactions, colds, flu, ear aches, sore throats, minor burns, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach distress, sprains, minor broken bones and fractures, and more.
