Marion, our Receptionist
Marion’s pleasant greeting to all who visit and call our office sets the standard for an excellent healthcare experience every time. Her reassuring smile, infectious laugh and seasoned expertise in mixing just the right amount of conversation to get business done and to set a comfortable and welcoming tone in the office is both rare and invaluable. Marion has an extraordinary ability to remember even the smallest details of important events and concerns—medical and personal—in each patient’s life, and with just a few words is able to convey the compassion and support of all of us at Summit.
Marion joined the Summit Medicine and Pediatrics team in July 2015 and we quickly realized that she is precisely what every medical practice needs as the first impression and the final thought of the day.
Originally from Germany, Marion began her healthcare career as a Medical Assistant there. She successfully completed rigorous training and began her work with a family medical practice. With her warmth and compassion, it was natural for Marion to be drawn to providing sensitive care for their cancer patients. The physician saw the same dedication, care and attention to detail we see today along with her commitment, hard work and skill. Marion has always been committed to providing the best possible care under the doctor’s provisions and he quickly promoted her to the Head Medical Assistant, a position she held for almost seven years.
Love brought Marion to the Unites States. She met her husband while he was stationed in Germany with the US Marine Corps and they now have two beautiful children who are the joys of their lives.
She feels blessed to be with us at Summit Medicine and Pediatrics, and at having the opportunity to make a difference for patients again.
Tasha, our Medical Assistant
All of our patients love and appreciate Tasha. Her compassion for them and commitment to ensure that they receive the highest level of attention and care—even beyond the confines of our own office—has made her an invaluable partner in their overall health. Patients often stop by to chat briefly with her, or to bring a handwritten note of gratitude because she had gone the extra mile for them. Tasha’s professionalism and skill as Summit’s medical assistant are surpassed only by her love for our patients and her determination to see the job done to restore the value and positive experience of healthcare in the doctor’s office
In 2002, her mother was diagnosed with colon cancer and Tasha experienced the love and care the nurses and doctors provided, in a way she’ll never forget. She knew then that she would dedicate her life to caring for and helping others, and she graduated at the top of her class, earning an Associate’s Degree in Medical Assisting in 2004. She’s committed to providing compassion and care every day to the patients she serves.
Today, Tasha loves spending time with her beautiful daughter, Taylor, her gorgeous little red-haired granddaughter Ashlyn, her newest handsome grandson, Ezekiel, and her adult special needs son, Sawne. Each is special in his/her own unique way and each of them brings her so much joy and happiness with every passing day.
A sports fan at heart, Tasha enjoys watching professional football and basketball. She is also a third degree black belt in karate, and was a member of the US Karate Team, competing internationally from 1986 to 1991.
Since she joined Summit Medicine and Pediatrics in January 2012 Tasha has considered it a pleasure to be Dr. Lucherini’s medical assistant. She feels fortunate to be a part of the lives of the patients who are the Summit Medicine and Pediatrics family.
