Meet Abby Guirguis

Abby Guirguis, APRN-CNP

Autonomous Family Nurse Practitioner, Abby Guirguis is the founder and CEO of Tropical Telemedicine. Abby launched Tropical Telemedicine in late 2022 with the passionate goal of providing a fast, hassle-free, and affordable way for Florida patients to receive essential healthcare services, online and from the comfort of their own homes.

Abby brings a valuable wealth of knowledge and expertise, with well over a decade spent working in healthcare. She has education, training and experience from several world-renowned academic institutions, including The Ohio State University and Cleveland Clinic. She has served as a Nurse and Provider to patients of all ages in a wide array of specialties and settings. 

A Midwest girl, Abby was born and raised in the small town of Zanesville, Ohio. She feels blessed to have been raised in a unique, diverse community that exposed her to various cultural backgrounds, situations, and needs. At a young age, she enjoyed serving others through active involvement in her church community. She developed a lifelong passion for health and fitness through her years as a dancer, gymnast, cheerleader, and runner. Inspired by these things, along with the compassionate nature of her aunt and close neighbor (both nurses she deeply admired), Abby chose to pursue a career in nursing.
