Meet our Staff
Laurie Lauria, CCMA, CLE – Patient Counselor
Laurie began working with Dr. Barnett in 2004. She returned to her Patient Counselor position with Dr. Barnett a number of years ago after a seven-year relocation to Southern California where she worked in the same role. She is a dedicated and supportive patient advocate and loves guiding patients through the process of considering or deciding to have a cosmetic surgery procedure. Her undergraduate studies in psychology and graduate studies in humanistic clinical psychology prepared her to be a kind and empathetic listener. She quickly puts patients at ease with her warm and humorous spirit. Laurie is also a medical assistant and licensed esthetician providing skin care education and post-operative skin care treatments to patients.
On her time off you’ll find her cooking, taking in a great film or enjoying the creative arts and food scene around San Francisco with her husband and friends.
