Here are some of the members of our wonderful, hardworking staff.

Gliselda Velasquez, Lead Medical Assistant

Gliselda has been a medical assistant  for over 15 years, and has worked internal medicine, urology and cardiology.  She has two sons, and a little grandson Noah.  On the weekends, she enjoys spending time with her husband watching him play soccer, chasing after Noah, and walking at the park.

Sara Lozano, Receptionist and Referral Coordinator

Sara ‘s expertise in referrals and procedure scheduling came in handy during the three years when she and Dr. Shenkman worked together in another practice. When the opportunity arose to hire Sara for her new practice, Dr. Shenkman knew that Sara would be ideal in running her front office. Outside of work, Sara’s three passions are hiking, running and photography. She has hiked several challenging trails, include Zion in Utah and locally Mt. Baldy, San Jacinto Peak and Cucamonga Peak. She is also an avid runner, has completed two full marathons, 4 half marathons and countless 5k and 10k races. Her newest hobby is nature photography, since purchasing her camera two years ago, and she plans to take pictures of peaks around the world!
