Working with Dr. James De Simone, Niki is the first point of contact with our patients. She accesses each patient’s need, records their vitals such as weight, blood pressure, etc. and then notes the purpose of the patient’s visit that day. She flags any important items for Dr. DeSimone to ensure that they don’t get overlooked during the patient’s appointment. Your appointment is her primary concern.
Niki is also your point of contact for prescription renewals.
For our Suboxone patients, Niki looks after the drug testing for Dr. DeSimone to adhere to Suboxone dosing requirements.
If you are ordering and paying for your blood tests in office through our self-pay program, Niki is the person that oversees that.
