Jim is a retired army medic who had been a surgical technologist, surgical assistant and now has his Masters in Health Care Management. He is our Chief Operations Officer but I am most proud to call him my friend and a member of our MK family. He is available to all of our patients to troubleshoot any and all issues. If you have a problem that we can help, we want to know about it.
In every business there is someone who meets every need, fills every hole. Beth Simmons is our Patient Access Manager but she does so much more than that. She precerts MRIs, schedules surgeries, helps with disability forms, argues with your insurance company, helps with medical clearance and just about anything that makes your experience smooth and effortless. She is the glue at MK and we are proud to welcome her to our team.
What is in a smile or a kind touch? Melissa Albert RT MA is a multi-talented individual who is our Radiology Technologist and Medical Assistant. Our patients will tell you that she is best known for her kindness and compassion. Sometimes Healing just requires a patient ear and a warm heart.
Experience. Training. Home Grown. We welcome Rachael Martin RN as our Practice Manager. She has the medical and clinical experience to manage your prescriptions and suggest other methods for managing your issue. But more important, we love her energy and compassion. We have the best smiles at MK!
The first person you meet in a new business can make or break your reputation. Our front desk receptionist has to be smart, kind, knowledgeable, and computer savvy. We found our person in Tara Walczak. Tara has worked for Community Health System and Pinnacle Hospital for over 5 years and she brings a wealth of information with her. Welcome Tara!
Melissa just joined the team and we couldn't be happier. She will assist you ad the front desk with the utmost pleasantry and professionalism. We look forward to a long tenure here at MK Orthopedics.
We are proud of our association with Brookfield Zoo where Dr Komanduri is an Orthopaedic Consultant. This is one of the most amazing experiences our surgeons have ever had and we are so grateful to the Zoo for the opportunity.
