WHY I LOVE WORKING AT RANSOM, MD: I love running my own practice and watching the patients’ faces when they see their results!
I have been consulting in this amazing industry for nine years and have had the pleasure of launching, leading and developing practices in San Francisco, Beverly Hills and Orange County, CA. While every practice is unique, the common bond within them is that you get to assist people making major decisions and reveling in their confidence when they have completed their journey. That, in addition to the constant development of new technologies has kept me hooked. Prior to my current role, I worked as an executive in multiple companies and also built and launched the largest spa and wellness center in San Francisco.

WHY I LOVE WORKING AT RANSOM, MD: There are so many reasons truly. You can teach service, but you can’t teach authenticity and this team has it in spades. I have worked with many, many surgeons and I need to not only feel proud of the work they do, but also how ethical they are in business; Dr. Ransom is at the top of the heap. You can tell a lot about the practice by the patients who come in – and I still sit back and smile hearing the squeals of excitement when people come in, the constant “catch up” that happens and the genuineness of their journeys.
My primary goal as Patient Care Coordinator is to provide every patient with a friendly and attentive experience. I realize that surgery is a personal and private decision. My hope is to create a calm, relaxing environment where patients can gather the information they need to decide if surgery is the very best option for them. As a licensed Esthetician, I have been a part of the health and beauty industry for more than 20 years. My passion for wellness extends into my private life where I coach individuals on mindfulness and nutrition. I was born and raised in California and I consider San Francisco my home. I’ve been working with Dr. Ransom since 2018 and I’m excited about being a part of such a professional, caring and dedicated team. I look forward to continuing to learn how to provide the best in patient care and experiences.

I’m originally from New York and moved from New York to San Francisco over seven years ago. I graduated from a small school in Upstate New York and have been a certified Medical Assistant for over seven years.

Before my work as a Medical Assistant, I worked as a mastectomy garment and prosthetic fitter.

Hi my name is Karla and I am the receptionist at Dr. Evan Ransom M.D and have over two years of experience in this industry. Prior to joining the Evan Ransom M.D. team I was living in Los Angeles and was working for a high end Dermatologist/ High Def. Lipo surgeon as an assistant to a patient consultant. Soon after I stopped working there I started working for two plastic surgeons who focused only on surgical body procedures. I guess you can say I have always been curious and eager to learn more about plastics. The reason why I have continued to work in this field is because I love the reactions of patients when they see their results, their energy and self confidence is boosted and I love being able to witness that.
