Trisha went out of her way to help us when we found out our PCM from base didn't put in the right authorization codes for the office visit. Trisha made numerous calls to ensure we got the correct authorization codes. Trisha is the perfect face for the front of the office. She is customer focused and you can see she takes her job seriously and an huge asset for Ortho Nebraska. I would give her an 11 out of 10 stars ??
