Andrea DeSimone is our practice manager/patient care coordinator who joined our practice in April 2018. Andrea joined our practice with over 30 years experience in retail store, small business and plastic surgery office management. She truly loves meeting new people which is expressed the moment that you meet her. Her positive attitude is contagious as she truly loves the field of aesthetics and the amazing non-surgical results that we see every day in our practice. Andrea enjoys spending her free time with her boyfriend, her family and her dog “Lucy”.
