Meet our Care Coordinators
They are patient advocates who listen, answer questions, and provide information, so that patients know exactly what to expect during their visit with us.
“I always go the extra mile for patients.”
Before every exam, Deborah always takes the extra time to anticipate any issues patients may have. “Taking that little extra time to put myself in the patient’s’ shoes helps me resolve issues before the exam begins. This makes a big difference in helping patients have a more relaxed experience.” When Deborah isn’t caring for people, she volunteers for a local animal rescue organization.
“A smile can go a long way”
Being a shift leader at a local pizza shop required Emily to run a structured shift, multitask and assist customers and employees during her shift. When not working hard, she likes to play hard. She was a gymnast for 12 years, enjoyed cheerleading, MMA and loves being outside and playing sports.
“Compassion is the most important job requirement.”
Before UMI, Nancy was a commercial bank teller. A former co-worker, now a UMI staff member, was so impressed by Nancy’s personal approach to customer service, she suggested that Nancy join our staff. The rest, as they say, is history.”I love my job because I get to help in some small way with patients’ well-being.” In her spare time Nancy volunteers for Visiting Nurse Service.
“I treat each patient as I would like to be treated, with understanding and patience.”
Carol joined UMI in 2006 after hearing from a relative that it was the “best place to work in Rochester.” She is responsible for training other Care Coordinators and reviewing MRI safety with patients. She is the primary point of contact for patients when they need to prepare for their exam. “I enjoy helping patients and making their exam experience as relaxed and as easy as possible.”
Barbara “Jo” Meyer
“I love working with the wonderful staff here and meeting and caring for patients.”
Jo has been with UMI for seven years, where she first worked in medical records. Wanting more interaction with patients, she is now responsible for working with Technologists and Nurses to provide patients with a positive exam experience. Her administrative experience also comes in handy in helping patients fill out their paperwork to expedite the exam process.
“You can make a difference is someone’s life or make someone’s day by listening to them with an open mind and an open heart .”
Lisa is our night care coordinator also interested in furthering her education in health and patient care. Lisa loves working with patients and working with the wonderful staff here at UMI.
