Meet Our Staff

Ciara Howard

Ciara is our practice manager and pivotal to keeping everything in the office running smoothly. Due to the small office size, she wears many hats – office receptionist, billing coordinator, provider assistant – just to name a few. However, it is her warm and welcoming demeanor that our patients frequently mention as well as her willingness to help patients out with problems such as insurance or pharmacy issues. Ciara likes watching paternity court, going out to brunch and teasing her co-workers.

Balance
Dave Maslar

Dave is our “behind the scenes” guy. You may see him filling in for Ciara when she is on vacation or away from the office. He may also pop up if the internet is out or something needs to be fixed. Dave likes foraging for mushrooms and grilling.
