Meet Our Staff
Michele Card – Patient Coordinator
I am Dr. Taylor’s patient coordinator. I have been taking care of cosmetic and reconstructive patients since 1998. Whether your procedure is cosmetic or reconstructive, I will assist you in many ways during your surg
ery scheduling process. From appointments to insurance needs I am here to help you in any way possible. My main goal
is to help our patients understand their medical/insurance benefits as it can be a confusing time. Dr. Taylor is an excellent surgeon and is very committed to his patients’ care. It is a pleasure to work in his practice.
Audrey Fey – Licensed Skin Care Specialist
As a licensed Skin Care Specialist and member of The Society of Plastic Surgical Skin Care Specialists, I bring to Allure Plastic Surgery Center over 30 years of experience in the beauty and skin care industry. My years of experience as director of The Plastic Surgery Skin Care Center in Englewood, NJ and educator for a variety of Medical & Skin Care Companies have helped me to understand the aging process and what is necessary to maintain a youthful appearance. I love to combine innovative technologies with personalized skin care, to keep all our patients on the cutting edge of cosmetic enhancement with a safe & satisfying result! I look forward to helping you achieve your skin care goals!
Mary Lenskold, PA-C
I am Dr. Taylor’s physician assistant, having earned my Bachelors degree from Rutgers University and my Masters degree from UMDNJ’s PA program. I assist him during surgery as well as in the office. Being a mother of 4 and a breast cancer survivor allows me to integrate my personal experience with my patient care. I feel this helps me offer more compassionate treatment and a better understanding of how both cosmetic and reconstructive patients feel. I love assisting Dr. Taylor and watching his skill and expertise transform his patients. It is very gratifying to be a part of his practice and care for Dr. Taylor’s patients as they go through their surgical course.
Laura Purazzo, RN
I started working at Dr. Taylor’s as a patient coordinator, but soon realized I really wanted to take care of his patients in a more personal way, so I returned to school and completed my degree in nursing at Brookdale Community College. Nursing has turned out to be as exciting and interesting as I expected and I am enjoying taking care of his patients. I hope to make your experience a positive experience as well.
Jackie Pietronico – Receptionist
I joined Dr. Taylor’s practice five years ago. As Dr. Taylor’s receptionist I will do my very best to help you find the most convenient available appointment whether it is for Dr. Taylor, Mary our PA-C, Laura our nurse or our Aesthetician Audrey. I will do all that I can to see that your appointment time is respected as much as possible.
Connie Higgins – Financial Coordinator
I am Dr. Taylor’s financial coordinator; I have been with Dr. Taylor since 2001. I can help you coordinate your Out of Network insurance benefits if your procedure is medically necessary, or I can assist you with obtaining financing for your cosmetic procedure. I’m here to help, so feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns as regards the financial aspects of your procedure.
