Sharon – Office Manager/Patient Care Co-Coordinator

Sharon – Office Manager/Patient Care Co-Coordinator

Sharon became employed with Lawrence Plastic Surgery in 1997. Not only has she been employed with the practice the longest, she has enjoyed her journey along the way which began as the practice receptionist, patient care coordinator, and now in the role as office manager/patient care co-coordinator. She believes Dr. Thellman and his staff are a great team. Everyone works together to create a comfortable environment for each and every patient from the minute they walk into our beautiful office suite for their initial patient visit all the way through to their last post-op appointment. We pride ourselves in the expert care our patients receive and the many great friendships borne along the way. We treat our patients as we would want to be treated and respect each and every one of them. Maybe that is why so many of them still just pop in to say “hi” and get a hug.
