Next in our “Meet the Staff” series is Tammy K! Tammy has worked at Piedmont for over two decades, and has been seen in many of our roles.
What is your role at Piedmont Eye Center?
I have worn many hats. When I first started, I worked front desk, check-in & check out.

Currently I am the Patient Financial Coordinator and work with both retina teams to ensure our retina patients have coverage and drug copay assistance.

Over 21 years, I started here in 1996.
What do you love most about your job?
I love my coworkers and assisting patients in any way possible.
What is one thing you wish every patient knew?
How hard we strive to make all of our patients happy. Our doctors and staff genuinely care for each and every patient.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren and family, and THE BEACH.
If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one thing, what would it be?
Music. Rock and Roll all the way.
If money was not a concern what would you do every day if you didn’t work?
Walk on the beach. Every. Day.
If you could have dinner with any one person, living or dead, who would it be?
President Trump, I find him quite fascinating. I would love to talk to him about health care and veterans care.

Coke. And this was a toss up since I love both coffee and tea.
Do you have any words of advice to share?
Make every moment count and never take anything for granted.
