Anna has been working with Dr. Amato for 7 years. When patients come in to have a surgical procedure done they usually don’t know what to expect and can be very nervous. Anna is very comforting to the patients and makes them feel better about having their procedure done. Anna and Dr. Amato are a great team together, which makes the patients feels at ease. She is very good about keeping the patients on schedule and making sure every patient leaves with proper post op instructions.
The most important part of Anna’s job is keeping everyone in the office laughing it helps the day go by smoother. When not at work, she’s a full time Wife and Mom (taxi).She loves walking her dog Christmas, and enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
