April Patellis, CRNP


While April has been with the practice since it’s inception in 2011, she has only recently changed roles to that of our Nurse Practitioner.  You may have seen her in the lab drawing blood, working as a nurse or even working at the front desk! April is very excited to change roles and provide the best care she can for the patients at TVIM.  April is married to Dr. Patellis and they have 3 children. Outside of work April spends the majority of her time with her 3 children who are all very active in extra-curricular activities. 

Kayla Scott

Kayla is our Medical Lab Technician and has been with our practice since 2016.  She has been a constant staple for our patients.  She is the epitome of the word team player and our office would not run efficiently without her.  In her time off, she enjoys spending time with her husband.  

Krista Hughes

Krista has been a familiar face in the front office since 2017.  You may also recognize that she and Kayla are twins! In addition to being a familiar voice on the other end of the phone, Krista is also our referral coordinator and an essential part of our team.  In her off time, Krista enjoys spending time with her husband and their beautiful daughter.  

Sonia Ruano

Sonia is our lead Medical Assistant and has been with our practice since 2017.  She is the main Medical Assistant for Dr. Patellis and helps the clinic run smoothly on a daily basis.  Without Sonia’s level of commitment and expertise our clinic would not run as efficiently.  

Jessica Haehnle

Jessie is the newest member of our clinical staff.  She moved here from Michigan in 2021 and became the full-time Medical Assistant for our Nurse Practitioner, April Patellis.  Her sweet demeanor has already endeared her to so many of our patients.  Outside of work, Jessi enjoys hiking, working out and spending time with her dog.
