Nicole is the office manager at Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery of Central Pennsylvania. She helps to determine the direction of the practice by helping to choose new non-invasive medical equipment and helping to coordinate combined care for patients such as reconstructive breast surgical care for breast cancer patients. By fostering a relationship between the Pinnacle Health Breast Care Center and Dr. Foley, our practice has been able to help numerous patients recover from breast cancer. By helping to choose the most efficacious and most comfortable non-invasive new technologies to utilize for patients, our practice is able to serve the aesthetic goals of our patients (even non-surgically). In addition to helping to direct the practice, Nicole oversees the office staff as well as the billing for the practice. Nicole has worked in many surgical practices. She is now excited to assist in patient care by overseeing patient satisfaction, recruiting staff and new resources, assuring staff benefits are optimized, organizing financials, and helping to lead the practice.
