Carina is awesome! I have so enjoyed having her as my PA the last 4 1/2 years since first coming to VM for gastric bypass surgery. She is thoughtful, caring and extremely good at her job. I always feel that I have her full attention, she listens and comes up with thoughts, plays, etc. She is a HUGE asset to VM. ,
