Get to know Teresa

As Director of Clinical Services, Teresa is responsible for ensuring that our clinic runs smoothly on a day-to-day basis. She also assists in the development and implementation of the clinic's policies and procedures. 

Teresa brings over 12 years of clinical, administrative and legal experience to our practice.  For many years, she worked in a clinic that specializes in Worker’s Compensation and Personal Injury Claims. She frequently dealt with insurance adjusters and attorneys, which has given her great insight into methods to advocate for our patients’ rights. More recently, Teresa worked as the office manager of a busy plastic surgeon’s office.

Teresa hopes to use her extensive background in pain management and aesthetics to optimize the overall patient experience. She is extremely passionate about patient care and holds the patient’s well-being as her top priority.  She prides herself in her ability to build relationships with patients and believes strongly that our patients should be fully educated about their treatment options.

Teresa enjoys spending time with her family, the outdoors, road trips and karaoke wars in the car. She is heavily involved in her daughter and son’s sports activities. She also loves to travel and hopes to soon visit India and Korea. Her favorite food is Peruvian: ceviche, lomo saltado, and anticuchos.
