What our team thinks

"New projects, developments and performance recognition are part of our culture. When I first started with GEC, I mentioned we should have a hand washing sink in an area of the clinic. It was immediately added to the plans. Being able to contribute thoughts, being asked your opinion and being considered valued makes work stimulating."
Ann Meier
Practice Manager
"I enjoy having quality relationships with other staff and patients. I feel appreciated, recognized, respected and know i'm a valuable member of the team. Every member of the GEC family is united in striving to provide excellence in patient care."
Meredith Rivers
Clinical Manager
"At GEC I have grown into a position of responsibility that has allowed me to have an influence on patient care and their experience at our clinic, and what GEC will grow to be. The opportunity to work closely with MDs and to learn from them is rewarding in itself."
