Joanna Yerro – Personal assistant to Dr. Benjamin Tehrani

Joanna Yerro

Joanna Yerro is a personal virtual assistant to Dr. Tehrani. Even though she currently resides in the Philippines, she plays a crucial role in organizing Dr. Tehrani’s work.

Joanna is a licensed nurse and has been working with Kings Point Foot & Ankle for more than two years now. Among the many responsibilities Joanna has, overseeing patients’ eligibility and benefits, and authorization requests are her primary duties, and she executes them perfectly.

In her out-of-office time, she enjoys playing with her son, watching TV shows, and listening to music. Working with Dr. Tehrani has helped her realize that distance doesn’t matter if you are passionate about what you do. She believes that success always comes no matter how rough are the roads that lead to it. Joanna is grateful to be part of the growing Kings Point Foot & Ankle family, and looks forward to many more years together.
