Lynsey Rochester, Medical Assistant

Lynsey Rochester is the most recent addition to the team. As a Licensed Massage Therapist she was utilizing our medical space for her own private practice. She began filling in for us as a Medical Assistant and fell in love with medical patient care. She adapted quickly to our traditional medical/surgical practice. However, she often can't resist giving a patient a hand, foot, or neck massage while Dr. Lieberman is performing an in office procedure. The patients really appreciate her massage therapy skills and sensitivity.
