Mary-Beth Charno, FNP-BC

Board Certified Nurse Practitioner located in Midtown West, New York, NY

A graduate of both Stony Brook University with a Master’s degree in Advanced Practice Nursing, and Pace University with a Bachelors of Science in Nursing, Mary-Beth worked for ten years in oncology.  She started her career in hospital nursing at the bedside of acute cancer patients; then advanced to Certified Chemotherapy Nurse, treating in outpatient settings at Memorial Sloan Kettering and Monter Cancer Center in Long Island. Some of her most interesting work was spent at an alternative cancer center in Long Island where Insulin Potentiation Therapy was offered to minimize the harmful side effects of full dose chemotherapy. Treatments were tailored to strengthen the immune system and included high dose vitamin C, IV minerals, ozone therapy, ultraviolet light therapy and unique nutritional approaches.

Early on in her career she became Board Certified as a Holistic Nurse through the American Holistic Nurses Association, and this training continues to inform her patient care. She has spoken at many nursing grand rounds, conferences and retreats over the years teaching nurses and organizations the value and benefits of holistic care for their patients as well as themselves. 

Mary-Beth is currently studying for certification at the Institute for Functional Medicine and has become increasingly interested in the intersect of Fx Med and Lyme treatment, as tick-borne illness is her specialty. She trained intensively with Dr. Richard Horowitz and is now learning under Dr. Jemsek.

Mary-Beth is a 200-hr E-RYT/500-hr Registered Yoga teacher and is also a graduate of the inaugural 2009 Urban Zen Integrative Therapist Program created by Donna Karen. Urban Zen offers patients a synergistic model of yoga, essential oils, Reiki and mindfulness practice and is reaching thousands of patients nationally, 

She is certified at the Master’s level in Reiki and is a practitioner of Breema, a system of gentle bodywork that fosters deep relaxation.

In addition to her work here at IMNY she has a private practice in the Hudson Valley where she lives.
