Our staff and doctors are the most dedicated and caring group. Today, we introduce you to our office manager Jana Balance.
Jana has been part of the Brookside Optometric Group since 1989 starting as a technician then became office manager in 2002. She has worked for ophthalmologists in San Diego and Stockton many years ago. Her typical workday consists of employee scheduling, employee counseling, meetings with various vendors, updating doctor’s credentialing information, and occasionally helping patients that require special attention.
Her favorite part of the job is spending time with our patients and learning more about them. She thinks that she does not have the opportunity to do that enough! However, she gets to spend the majority of her work day surrounded by the awesome staff and doctors whom she loves. She is fortunate to work with the best people.
The most significant and meaningful aspect of her job is that she has the chance to work for doctors who give so much of themselves is truly inspiring. Whether it is traveling to underdeveloped countries to give free eye exams or helping local impoverished children, the doctors at Brookside Optometric are truly so generous.
She currently resides in Escalon with her husband, Barry, a sheriff’s deputy in Stanislaus County, and three children. Her family spends a lot of time being outdoors. She enjoys camping, traveling, hiking, and spending time with friends, and family. Her family are huge baseball fans, whether, it is local tournaments or the big leagues. They are also big San Francisco Giants fans.
