Allyssa is a welcomed addition to the practice and serves as our Nurse Practitioner. She brings with her a vast background of knowledge from her seven years as a surgical and trauma registered nurse. While gaining this valuable hands-on experience in the hospital, she attended school where she earned a dual certification as both a Family Nurse Practitioner and an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. This means she’s trained to handle a wide variety of issues that arise both in the clinic and in the operating room as well as the immediate postoperative period. For over four years she has applied this training and served as a Nurse Practitioner specializing in cosmetic plastic surgery, trauma reconstructive plastic surgery, as well as invasive and noninvasive wound care. Currently she assists Dr. Balinger’s patients with preoperative and postoperative care, and she serves as his first assistant in the operating room. Under Dr. Balinger's tutelage, she also offers a wide variety of ever-expanding aesthetics including skin care, injectables (neurotoxins and dermal fillers), and non-surgical procedures (PDO threads, PRP, and scar modulation).
