Front Office Team

Our front office staff are here to welcome you and assist you with all of your scheduling, insurance, and other logistical needs

Office Manager

Kim Oppy

Ms. Kim

Kim Oppy is our official “office manager”. The title however, is not fitting. Kim IS the office. Even though she does not do it alone, Kim is integral to all the cogwheels of the office. Most likely, when you call the clinic, you will talk with Kim. She is your first contact when scheduling your first appointment. Simply put, no one does it better. Not only can she answer scheduling, billing, funding, and insurance questions, but she is genuinely invested in getting to know you.  What makes Kim’s day is when a child finally is able to say her name and greet her. She loves spending time with her family and friends. But honestly, Kim is a workaholic. Not because it’s a job requirement, but because she loves what she does and the part she plays in helping families everyday.

At the end of the day, we congregate in her office to discuss podcasts, articles, books and new treatment tools. To say that Stacey is passionate is putting it mildly.
