Spotlight on: Anita Zargar, RN, BSN
What she does at VSC: What keeps my job exciting is that each day is a little different. Mondays are predominantly for surgery re-checks and surgery consultations. On these days, I assist Dr. Colgrove with patient examinations in order to ensure they are progressing accordingly after surgery. Wednesdays are when most pre-operative appointments are done. I especially enjoy pre-ops because it allows an opportunity to further educate our patients with the knowledge they need regarding expectations during the day of surgery and after surgery. Lastly, on Fridays, I spend my day in the operating room helping Dr. Colgrove with surgery followed by monitoring my patient’s condition in the recovery room until they are ready to be discharged home.
Joined Vinings Surgery Center in: April of 2011
What she loves most about what she does: I enjoy working with patients that are choosing to better their lives and attitudes by undertaking cosmetic surgery. I have the opportunity to build a relationship with my patients from the moment they walk in for their consultation until they have progressed through their post-operative appointments. It’s a rewarding feeling to be there for them every step of the way!
What she hopes her clients gain from treatment: The perception of an individual is oftentimes a reflection of how they view themselves. With that said, my hope for patients is to transform their specific insecurity to confidence so they can channel it to their goals and successes. What I find the most rewarding in my work is to see patients return after surgery with renewed confidence!
Her biggest piece of advice for patients: Be open and confident about what you want to achieve with your desired look. At Vinings Surgery Center, we care about each one of our patients and want them to have the best experience possible.
What she does when she’s not working: I am currently in graduate school obtaining a master’s to one day become a family nurse practitioner. When I am not studying, I spend my time exercising and spending time with my friends and family.
