    Dawn Dauchy, FACMPE,  joined our practice in early 2015. She has worked in a similar capacity since 1991. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration in 1995 and is a Fellow in the American College of Medical Practice Executives. She and her husband Mark raised two daughters and enjoy long walks, taking the back roads and spending summers camping with their fur baby, Zoe the cat. Dawn’s philosophy is to lead by example. If focus is placed on treating others as one wishes to be treated, not only will the physicians and staff have a more fulfilling work experience, but most importantly the patient experience improves. The primary goal is to provide every patient with the best experience possible and to continually assess where improvement can be made.
