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!
Melissa just joined the team and we couldn't be happier. She will assist you at the front desk with the utmost pleasantry and professionalism. We look forward to a long tenure here at MK Orthopedics.
Vedie is our Clinic Manager and comes from a background of academic medicine. She has published books during her stay at Loyola University on Emergency Management of Injuries. She has an extensive orthopedic background and is able to answer your questions when a physician is occupied with other patients.
Leslie is our front-desk manager and is the face of the practice. You will receive a pleasant response each time you visit. Leslie is also a medical assistant and radiology technologist. She understands how the rest of the practice operates and can address any worries or concerns you may have, or get you to the right person in our practice.
Laura is our billing manager. It is her job to make sense of your insurance plan and to clarify your balance and medical coverage. She will be happy to explain or correct any billing statement that you receive.
