Our staff has humbly requested not to participate in a glamour photo shoot to be included on our website or newsletter. I accepted the request, and will brag on the beauty that is our personnel anyway. I am gifted indeed to share our service with folks who share a vision. For all we do, our guiding value is: "Be the Best Place to work and the Best Place to come as a patient."

Barbara has supported our practice since 1986. As you encounter Barb over the phone, at the front desk or in the clinical zone, you will quickly recognize the ease she lends to your visit, and the heart she brings to ensure your comfort and understanding. Barb "has my back", and yours; nary a decision goes by that she hasn't considered all angles and perspectives, keeping our rudder on course.

Deb has been on board since 1990. Deb has been our engine room, supplying a vast reserve of energy in a now mostly-behind-the-scenes role as safety net and project manager. Deb lends a softness and steely strength to the volumes of administrative services that keep your records flowing with the tide, rather than against it.

Jean is the voice and face of our practice and has been since 2004. In the astounding way that is Jean's way in life, nothing escapes her vigilance to holding our direction and pace. Jean brings an appreciation of economics, sure. However, her "antennae" for many voices and many choices coupled with a radar quality of information gathering and sharing has provided a bottomless reserve for tracking and pointing the practice towards our goals. Jean is our GPS with a conscience and heart-borne integrity.
