Courtney has worked on the corporate side of medicine and business for 15 years, but don’t let her no-nonsense attitude fool you. She has a warm nurturing side that percolates through everything she does. Having worked as a patient care coordinator in a busy NY practice, she returns to that role here as our patient care coordinator and marketing manager. She will help you with scheduling and financing your procedures, as well as with any questions or concerns that you have along the way. Along with being your initial point of contact, she will keep you informed of all the great things that are going on in the practice via social media. Courtney is passionate about cosmetic surgery, having seen the improvement in self esteem that comes with all of our procedures.

In her spare time Courtney loves to help others by volunteering as well as spending time with friends and family including traveling with her husband to explore new places.


Born and raised on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Paola began her career in Plastic Surgery in 1997 working for one of New York City’s finest and most prestigious Plastic Surgeons. She accepted the full-time role of patient coordinator, initially, providing patients with a seamless experience from consultation to post-operative care. Paola advanced to practice manager after obtaining her Bachelor’s in Psychology from Fordham University. As a practice manager, she focused more on the revenue cycle, budget, vendor relationships, compliance, safety protocols, and regulations as well as staff and patient concerns. Needless to say, she has been involved in every aspect of a Plastic Surgery practice.

In 2011, after 15 years with the same surgeon, Paola felt it was time to expand her career. She sought a larger practice with multiple doctors, offering both surgical, and the more popular non-invasive procedures. Paola joined a practice with two locations and multiple providers, for services that ranged from invasive cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries to skincare and everything in between. In 2014 Paola acquired her Life Coach Certification, further assisting practice and patients to achieve their professional and cosmetic goals. She is someone who understands the “mind-body” connection and is available for employees and patients alike. Paola is passionate about her family. Her goal is to live the best life possible while educating others and helping them to achieve their dreams. She is devoted to bringing out the beauty in everyone and everything. In her free time, she enjoys organic gardening, creating things of beauty from the ground up.
