MEET OUR TEAM
Marta Gamboa is the Practice Administrator and Patient Coordinator for our office. She comes to Sierra Nevada Cosmetic and Laser Surgery with over thirty years of experience, across a number of specializations, within the medical field—from radiology to obstetrics/gynecology to facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.
In her capacity as Practice Administrator, Marta attends to all aspects of office management—provider credentialing, health and welfare benefit plans, HR and personnel, office contracts, event coordination and communications, community outreach, and more—often wearing a number of hats at once.
As Patient Coordinator, Marta works closely with Dr. Yamamoto, assisting in consultations with, and devising schedules for, patients who are considering surgery as a means to attaining the look and sense of well-being they have set their sights on.
This dedication to expressing the unfamiliar in familiar terms reflects Marta’s wider-reaching motivation and purpose: she takes great pride and satisfaction in utilizing her accumulated knowledge and expertise to help patients effectively negotiate the intricacies of the medical and healthcare professions.
As Dr. Yamamoto’s Medical Assistant, Tori assists with every in-office procedure, from injections; like dermal fillers and Botox, to surgery; like upper eyelid surgery, ear gauge repair and skin cancer removal and reconstruction.
Tori is not just Dr. Yamamoto’s Medical Assistant, she has many roles. She manages and develops the office website, Facebook and Instagram pages. Due to Tori’s background as the Business Manager of a major cosmetic line for many years, she brings to Sierra Nevada Cosmetic and Laser Surgery her social media, marketing and event coordinating expertise.
Her real passion is patient care. She is devoted to making sure her patients are comfortable. She takes great care to ensure that when you are in her exam rooms, you are relaxed and know you are in great hands. She is committed to creating the best patient experience possible. She loves the opportunity to answer questions and educate patients.
After growing up and attending college in Northern California, Tori and her husband relocated to Reno so she could pursue her dream of continuing her medical education by attending University of Nevada, School of Medicine. Her hobbies include outdoor activities with her hubby, throwing the ball with her dogs and photographing the beauty around her.
From your first interactions at Sierra Nevada Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, during your procedures and throughout your post-op care, Tori is there to answer questions and provide patient care. She loves the opportunity to help women look and feel as beautiful as they deserve to be. Tori understands how important customer satisfaction is and she looks forward to helping you achieve your aesthetic goals.
