Meet Our Team

“Our patients frequently share how impressed they are with our staff, which I’m delighted (but never surprised) to hear. While the longevity of our team is very impressive, they are each dedicated to ensuring our patients have an excellent experience at every visit. There is also a genuine sense of camaraderie in our office, a team spirit I’m proud to say that patients ‘feel.’ I look forward to helping you get to know these talented individuals.”
– Dr. Ban Barbat
