Kristie Berkebile, RN, BSN
Kristie assists with day-to-day operations for the practice such as billing, scheduling, and credentialing providers. She has a wealth of experience in program management as she was formerly the manager of three separate departments in her employment history. She will be assisting clients with scheduling issues as they arise, billing concerns and advocating for clients by contacting insurance companies for reimbursement of claims, and will be assisting the clinical staff with burdensome paperwork that the clinicians often do not have time to complete. As a non-clinical staff person, Kristie will not have access to client clinical information shared but only the information needed for billing and reimbursement. Any time you reach her you will be greeted with compassion and kindness, and she will gladly assist with whatever concerns you may have.
