Photo of our optometric assistants
We hope you love our team as much as we do. Our office manager, Gale has been working with us since 1997 and has many years of experience in the medical field. Geri is currently on a leave of absence while she serves on the mission field along side her husband Barry in Mexico. In the meantime, Mili, Sam and Sarah round out the rest of our friendly and helpful front end team.
Gathering our team of part-timers together for a photo is no easy feat but, rest assured, you are in good hands with them as most of them are in training to be our future doctors and dentists. Both Dr. Dhawan and Dr. Mahil started as part of our team of assistants!
