Vicky is the practice manager. She is part of the heart and soul of the practice and she is what makes the office work. She has over 35 years medical office experience. Her organizational skills, her abilities, her memory, and her commitment to get things done are outstanding. She will do everything she can to help our patients get what they need and see to their satisfaction. There is no one in an office environment who is more capable. Her kindness and her caring are completely natural.
Tamara has been with us since July 2015. She will usually be the voice you hear answer the phone when you call. It is so much better to speak with her than having to deal with a phone menu. We have cultivated and trained her in the many facets of our cardiology practice. She is very kind and very helpful. She goes the extra mile to help patients with appointments or any other tasks she may be given to handle. We are very glad to have her as part of our team whether she is answering phones or helping out with the back office. She is a great assest to the type of practice we have.
