Rachel Abbe, Medical Secretary
I’m sure most of you have talked to me at some point, whether that’s on the phone directing your inquiries or while exchanging information during the check-in process.
Hi, I’m Rachel. I am Pregenzer Urology’s Medical Secretary. You may be asking what does that mean? For me, it means that I am able to get you familiar with all things related to our office. This can include answering various questions about what types of services we provide, familiarizing you with the staff here at PU or simply, making you rest assured, that you are always in good hands.
Although I am still fairly new to Urology, I am no stranger to the medical field. After quite some time in Pediatrics, the change to Urology has kept me challenged. The best part of working in the medical field for me has and will always be patient contact. I’m a patient myself and will always treat you like I would want to be treated.
Keeping me busy outside of my job is my son Jack and our dog, Abbie. You can always catch us outside playing a round of horse at the basketball hoop or taking weekends away camping.
