Licensed NJ Ophthalmic Dispenser

I have been in the ophthalmic field for 30 plus years, caring for Dr. Kerker's patients since the mid 1990's and Dr. Spears' since the early 2000's. I am responsible for purchasing and maintaining an EXCLUSIVE frame inventory. I take great pride in offering unique styles to our patients. My philosophy is to wed, form to functionality, by remaining current with technology and thus providing patients with the very latest in fashion and comfort.

Trish or Pat (Depending on who you speak to at the office):
Office Manager

I've worked with Dr. Harvey Kerker in the Ophthalmic Field as a Certified Medical/Optometric Assistant for the past 30 years. During that time I became a Certified Ophthalmic Technician and trained in Retinal Laser Scanning & Anterior Segment Photography. Since the early 2000's I have served Dr. Kerker and Dr. Ivy Spears as office manager of their private practice. Since the mid 1980's my experience in the field has been tremendously fulfilling as a result of the technological advancement in our instrumentation and procedures in the area of diagnosis & treatment.

Optometric Technician

Since the mid 1990's, I have been an Optometric Technician and I have been lucky enough to be involved in an Optometric practice that stays current in Technology. My duties along with the comfort and care of the patients have also kept current. Along with desk work, making & confirming appointments, checking insurance, training & dispensing contact lenses, I am aware of the importance of being a liaison between patient & doctor. Neutralizing glasses, auto refractions, tonometry, blood pressure & retinal scanning are the duties I perform to prepare the patients for the doctors.

Medical Billing & Accounts Receivable

Since the early 1990's, I have been working in medical offices performing front desk duties and medical billing. I have been employed by Dr. Kerker and Dr. Spears since 2004 doing accounts receivables and front desk, specifically patient check out. I am the liaison between patients and insurance companies.

Front Desk & Frame Stylist

I have been an employee in the ophthalmic field since the mid 2000's and I have been with Dr. Kerker and Dr. Spears assisting patients, scheduling appointments and verifying insurance benefits. My favorite daily task is working in our beautiful optical boutique assisting patients with frame selection.
