Meet Our Staff
Vicki Gold – Vicki has been my most important supporter and assistant ever since starting in the practice of Medicine. She has fulfilled the roles of Practice Administrator, Office Manager, Accountant, Book-keeper, Ophthalmic Assistant, Insurance Expert, and many others. You will now see her smiling face at the front desk when you check in. Vicki’s is usually the first voice you will hear, cheerfully greeting you when you call our practice and she will do everything she can to help you organize your visits and make your time with us as pleasant and productive as possible.
Sylvana Kent – Sylvana comes to us from South Africa. She has been in the US for over 15 years and plans on staying. She became a US Citizen in 2014.
She has an extensive Customer Service and Support background and works with all the vision correction patients to make sure all the details are attended to before, during and after surgery. She performs the CustomVue Wave Scans, for your CustomVue Laser Vision Correction procedure. She has personally had CustomVue Epi-LASIK and MonoVision and she can explain the procedure from first hand experience as well as having assisted thousands of patients through the process. She is now my invaluable surgical assistant as well.
She has become an valued assistant on Laser Vision Correction days in the operating room, pre-op, and post-op areas. She utilizes her Ophthalmic Assisting skills to make every patient’s experience as comfortable and non-intimidating as possible. She has completed the JCAHPO Home Study Course with flying colors.
