Meet Our Staff
Dear Dr. Horton and Staff, You are angels and wonderful caregivers. Thank you so much for all of your care. You are an amazing group of doctors and staff. You have made my life much better, healthier and prettier!
Mary Pasache – Patient Coordinator
Mary Pasache is our invaluable Patient Coordinator, having been with the practice for over 16 years. Mary is extremely experienced, knowledgeable and conversant about all facets of our practice, both surgical and non-surgical.
Mary Pasache will schedule your consultation with Dr. Horton and will answer your initial questions, getting to know you a little over the phone. Mary can provide you with general information about the procedure(s) you are interested in, an estimate of surgical fees, and additional background information about our practice.
You will meet Mary in person after your consultation with your Plastic Surgeon. She will provide you with information regarding insurance authorization, a quote for expected fees and a packet that describes the procedure(s) in more detail. Mary schedules all our surgeries and works together with other Physicians’ offices to schedule combined procedures (with Breast Surgeons for mastectomies and immediate breast reconstruction, or OB-GYNs for combined Plastic Surgery and gynecological procedures).
Mary will be your “point person” throughout your surgical planning stages and will schedule your Preoperative Visit a week or two before your surgery date. She is available by phone or email to answer your questions and will accommodate your specific scheduling needs as best as possible. Outside of our office, Mary enjoys physical fitness, is an accomplished triathlete and has an incredible shoe collection! She enjoys spending time with her son, her husband of over 16 years and their four dogs. Contact her directly at: email@example.com.
