My name is Kathy Garcia, 24 years old, still fairly young. I am a schedule coordinator at the Piscataway office. I was in the medical field for 4 years and 2 years in dental. I must say from medical to dental it's completely different and I absolutely love all the knowledge I have and will continue to gain here. I love interacting with our patients and making sure they are 100% satisfied with our service. The best part of my Job is asking a patient how was their visit receive a positive feedback, For example: "It was great, I love my hygienist, she makes sure my teeth are nicely cleaned and doesn't try to rush me out the door, Dr. Desai is great he is such a sweet heart!" It is amazing to hear that our team works hard towards our #1 goal, which is making sure patient's needs are met.
Growing up as a little girl I was always fond of dancing, my parents noticed the passion I had for dancing and signed me up for ballet and cheerleading. I was always kept busy my entire childhood doing what I love the most. That's was all up until I was 12 years of age and got diagnosed with Scoliosis. My entire life had to be put on paused until I recovered from a major spine surgery, where I had to take an entire month off from school and even learn how to walk again. The recovery took a couple months and I was already getting impatient to start dancing again. I live for the music! Especially bachata.
In my free time I enjoy being with my boyfriend, getting in the car, blasting the music and singing until his ears fall off! Grabbing food together and laughing is what I cherish the most. I love my family and close friends and live, Love, Laugh and work hard is my daily motivation. I look forward to continue working with Dr. Desai and Dr. Lorch and our great team here, meeting new people and accepting any new challenges that may come my way.
