Meet Phyllis

Meet Yesi


Phyllis Smigocki


Yesenia Gutierrez, MA

Phyllis and Dr Gray have been working together for 20 years.  Phyllis grew up in Silver Spring and went to Northwood High School and Montgomery College.  Her first Medical Assistant job was in the same building we are located in now!  Phyllis is well known to all of our long time patients as an excellent phlebotomist.  She is semi-retired so she only works on Mondays if you are hoping to find her.  She has lived in Burtonsville with her high school sweetheart for 48 years and raised 3 children and now 5 grandchildren in the area.  She loves going to the beach and visiting her newest granddaughter in Charleston, SC.  She is an excellent potter, and her pieces can be found at local gift shops.

Yesi and Dr Gray have been working together for 8 years.  You may remember her from our previous office locations at Montgomery Ave, Shields Drive, and Allcare Bethesda.  Yesi grew up in Rockville and went to Rockville High School.  She graduated as a Medical Assistant from MedTech School in Silver Spring.  She is the proud mom of Max the dog and aunt to Khloe and Emma.  She lives in Gaithersburg and speaks and writes fluent Spanish.  She is in the office Tuesdays- Fridays.  And just like Phyllis, her first Medical Assistant job was also in this building over 10 years ago!

Meet Larissa

Larissa is the newest addition to our office.  She is originally from Panama, and she went to Universidad San Ignacio de Loyola for college in Peru.  Larissa lives in Rockville and in her spare time takes care of Poncho, a Neapolitan mastiff who comes to her as a rescue animal.  He is quite a handful!  She is in the office Monday-Friday until 4pm and handles all of our front desk duties.  Her hobbies include cooking since she has attended culinary school!
