What began as a small collaboration between two friends turned into a full-fledged partnership to create a modern, tech savvy medical practice. Andrew insists his best contribution is finding the awesome team (see below), but is also keen on creating a better model for private practitioners and their patients. He brainstorms everything that is annoying about doctor’s offices and eliminates them at SPARCC.
Andrew also builds software and is usually unavailable for comment.
(Clinic Manager, Medical Assistant)
Leslie brings over ten years of expertise as a medical assistant with the majority of that time in the medical field. In addition to her clinical expertise, her capabilities also extend into all aspects of the administrative processes required to successfully operate a medical facility. You can rest assured that when you aren’t seeing her in the clinic she’s behind the scenes making sure that every patient is taken care of. Leslie plans a return to school in the near future to pursue a degree in Health Administration which will enable her to broaden her scope that much more as SPARCC’s clinic manager.
With an active family of four children and a husband all involved to varying degrees of sports and activities, the draw to work in sports medicine was natural. Leslie views her career to be educational as well as exciting and credits Dr. Mortazavi for giving her the opportunity to work in such a rewarding specialty. Leslie looks forward to meeting the needs and special demands that your child athlete requires on a daily basis.
