Our Other Staff Members

Carole Alcorn, Secretary


After 28 years, there are few front office procedures that Carole can't do to make the office run smoothly and provide quality service in a timely manner. One of her goals is to know each patient personally.

Chesley Gollihar, R.P.T.

Chesley directs our prosthetic technical services and can relate to our patients from his own personal experience. One of the 'miracles' he has experienced is to be able to live a fully active life with his wife and children.

Jo Dee Homstad, Receptionist

The first friendly voice our patients or referral sources hear on the phone is Jo Dee's. She assists Carole with the front office procedures. She is a collector of Beanie Babies and a C&W fan.

Sheila  Phillips, Office Manager

Co-owner Sheila has spent a lifetime around the prosthetics profession. Her responsibilities include accounts payable, payroll, contracting, and compliance coordinator. In her spare time, she collects angels.
