Maria – Certified Surgical Technologist / Clinical Assistant
Maria worked in two local hospitals before she joined Dr. Stephens’ practice in 1999. She emigrated from Poland in 1992 with her two daughters, Marta and Natalie—that is why she has a thick Polish accent! But that does not stop her from talking. Now, she has four grandkids who she loves very much.
She is a very happy, outgoing, and positive person. She loves people, is kind, caring, and detail-oriented. You may see her on clinic days, assisting in the operating room, helping with post-operative visits, or assisting with injections. Our patients love Maria!
