Sonia Galindo – Reception

Sonya graduated from Atlantic Community High School in 2001.  She began working for Dr. Shapse in 2005 as front receptionist, and hasn’t looked back since. She multi-tasks daily, juggling responsibilities for patient scheduling, billing, prescription renewals, insurance inquiries of all kinds, medical records, drug pre-authorizations, faxes, mail, etc. –  not to mention responding to the many teleph0ne calls the office receives during the day.
