Ana Sanchez

Hi my name is Ana and here’s a little about me. I graduated as a doctor’s assistant from the Illinois School of Health Careers and started working for Dr. Rob in the winter of 2021. My main duty is to perform pretesting for patients prior to seeing the doctor. I also do chair side assisting for Dr. Rob.

The best part about working here is seeing the smiles and expressions of our Gentle Shaping System/Orthokeratology patients when they come in for their first morning on the program. 

I have 4 kids, ages 6 to 13 and in our free time, we like to go for long walks as a family.

Diana Gonzales

Hello everyone, my name is Diana but I also go by Dee. I graduated from Midwestern Career College with a degree in medical assisting in 2019. I started working for Dr. Gerowitz on October 2019.

Seeing as I will be the first and last person you encounter, I strive to be as knowledgeable and professional as I can be to ensure your visit is thorough and informative. It is my job to make sure all patients don’t leave without answers to their questions regarding their exam or billing. It is such a blessing to work with such caring people. I especially love that the staff treats each and every one of our patients with the utmost respect and truly aspires to help to our best ability.

On my off days I love to cook, read dystopian novels, and play with my kitty named Bandit. I also love to spend time with my family. I have two younger brothers that I love with all my heart. Making time for work and family is my main priority.

Bernice Torres

Hi, my name is Bere. I have been working with Dr. Gerowitz since July 2013. I graduated from Westwood College with a degree in medical assisting in 2013.

I am part of the technical staff at the office of Dr. Gerowitz. I perform the pretesting for patients who come for their eye exams. When performing preliminary tests with patients, I explain each test to make sure they understand how important each one is as part of a complete eye health exam. I also help with frame selection ensuring all of our patients look their best.

Outside of work you will find me out shopping or at the movie theaters. I enjoy spending quality time with my family as well. My favorite part of working for Dr. Gerowitz is interacting with the patients, especially during pretesting. Making patients feel comfortable is very important to me.

Hi, my name is Alma and I have been a part of Dr. Gerowitz’s staff since June 2012. I am a 2011 graduate from the Illinois School of Health Careers with a degree in medical assisting. I am the Product Manager for Dr. Gerowitz. As the product manager, I responsible for leading Dr. Gerowitz’s team as well as for all aspects of product ordering and quality.

Also, I am the one who gets to help new Orthokeratology patients get training when they first start on the program. I am able to help out in all aspects of the office to ensure quality patient experiences.

Outside of the office, I am the mother of four, ages seven months to eleven years. My kids are what encouraged me to go back to school. I wanted to make a better life for myself and my family.
