Clinic Coordinator - Liz - Greetings, my name is Liz. As you have probably noticed I am not in the office anymore. I have moved to Jefferson City with my husband Eric, daughter Emma and two sons, Luke and Gavin. I am now working from home doing some of the tasks that are hard to complete while serving patients on a daily basis. In an effort to make your visit the best I now handle as much of the insurance, confirming, rescheduling and ANYTHING else I can do from my home. I have had the priviledge of being an integral part of the extreme growth and evolution of this team since 1995. I look forward to chatting with you soon!
