MARY JO Somich

Cosmetic Coordinator

ur patients love Mary Jo. Many of them tell us that at different times through their journey she becomes like their sister, their mother, and their best friend. A compassionate listener, she will support you by understanding your goals, and then serving as your personal advocate to Dr. Vanek. Mary Jo will assist and support you from beginning to end, with her amazing way of quickly and completely relieving any feelings of fear or embarrassment. She also will coordinate financial arrangements, and schedule your procedure and follow-up appointments.

“I want to help you reach your beauty goals and ultimately help you feel great about yourself. Plastic surgery is life-changing! While it’s true that it can’t fix everything in your life, it often enhances your self-confidence to help you overcome life’s challenges and maximize life’s joys. I think that is why I love my job so much!”

Mary Jo is one of seven children, has been happily married for 40 years, is mother to 4 married children, and grandmother to 11 precious grandbabies!
