Front Desk Medical Manager
Theresa joined We’re So Vain five years ago helping people feel better about their vein issues, done right here in our office. Terrie’s ability to educate and put our patients at ease prior to their vein procedure comes from the joy she receives from watching their lives transform following the treatment. “Overweight people come in and because of their constant leg pain, they are unable to exercise and do the things they love to do. Following the vein procedure by Dr. Azia, they are more active and as a result, begin to look and feel better about themselves. This has such an overall positive impact on people’s lives.” Terrie’s smiling face, warmth, compassion and exceptional background made her a perfect addition to our practice.
