“If we do an eye surgery, I help him hold different instruments. Sometimes I cut sutures or perform Exilis treatments,” she said.
Anne came to Dr. Popp after she worked in an emergency room for five years.
“I was ready for a change,” she said. “Cosmetic and reconstructive surgery always interested me, so I applied. It worked out well.”
Anne said the team she joined is committed to providing great care.
“It’s a warm, welcoming and inviting staff. There are no bad or wrong questions,” she said. “We’re always happy to help patients with concerns or reservations.”
Anne said the patients are different than those she treated in the ER.
“Those who come for elective surgery are usually a healthier group,” she said. “They’re happy to be there and eager to have their procedures done and to learn from you.”
She said it’s cool to see how Dr. Popp, whom she calls “detail-oriented,” can change people’s lives for the better.
“He’s very straightforward and won’t sugarcoat anything because he wants you to have the facts,” Anne said. “Having a procedure is a big decision. Dr. Popp believes in educating you so you know what to expect both before and after.”
When Anne isn’t working, she spends time with her husband and dog. She likes to boat, swim, garden and bake.
