Kathleen Saradarian

Dr. Kathleen Saradarian, MD, grew up in Morris County, New Jersey. She received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychobiology from Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts, where she graduated cum laude. She then went on to Medical School at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-New Jersey Medical School in Newark, NJ. This was followed with her Resident Training at John F. Kennedy Medical Center in Edison, NJ in Family Medicine. When she completed her Residency, she joined Dr. Linda Vickery in practice in Sussex, NJ where they formed Sussex Family Practice. They were in practice together from 1990 to 2003. In 2003, they decided to go in separate directions and try something new for themselves. That is when Dr. Saradarian formed Quality Family Practice.

Humorous Quote of the Day:

High heels were invented by a woman who had been kissed on the forehead.

Christopher Morley

Since 1990, Dr. Saradarian has maintained her affiliation with what is now called Saint Clares Medical Center-Sussex Campus (it has had several names), the hospital at which she currently holds privileges.

Her practice is mostly paperless employing an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) called Practice Partner and an on-site history-taking tool called Instant Medical History. This electronic networking allows her near-instant retrieval of your records and results from anywhere she and her laptop have Internet access. And the nice part is that all your information is reliably backed up off-site and behind-the-scenes, so the probability of your information ever being irretrievably lost is exceedingly unlikely.

In addition to her career, Dr. Saradarian also enjoys her extended family, her husband and daughter, and their three dogs. Her husband is a farrier, her daughter is currently entering Middle School and writing a movie, and the dogs are simply good entertainment. All enjoy taking riding lessons together and traveling.

Kim Burse

Kim Burse is our daytime receptionist. She has a lot of responsibilities. She manages the phones, and all people walking through the door and is responsible for verifying all contact information and insurance information as well as getting appropriate paperwork signed. She also sets up the Instant Medical History program for the next patient to start. In between these responsibilities she also files, disperses faxes and messages, retrieves messages off the answering machine, writes the occasional referral, calls for preauthorizations for medications and radiologic studies, makes sun tea (if the weather is appropriate) and usually makes sure the doctor has a drink available (non-alcoholic of course), and usually with a smile on her face. Every once in a while Kim gets tied up and cannot immediately answer the phone. If that happens, please just be patient and leave a message. She always gets back to you as promptly as she can. You can e-mail Kim directly with appointment requests or follow up of something she is working on @ . Remember that it is possible, although unlikely, for e-mails to be intercepted, so do not include confidential information.

Debra Carbery

Debra Carbery is our biller/insurance champion. She has a really difficult job. She is charged with collecting payment for services already given. She does it well and does it with a friendly and pleasant manner; and fortunately, most of the arguing and fighting she does is with your healthplans and not you, the patient. However, she will sometimes need your help getting everything ordered and straight, as the two of you will be working closely together. She’s here to help you, and will do everything she humanly can to help the process along. If you have any questions or billing problems, please don’t stay silent: call or write. (Promise: She doesn’t bite.....often.) Debra is in the office from 10–3 on most days that we are open, and she is also available by e-mail @: . Remember, it is possible, although unlikely, for e-mails to be intercepted, so do not include confidential information.

Carol Corter

Carol Corter is our receptionist/referral specialist. This is Carol’s second job. She doesn’t come in until 4 PM. Her primary job is the same as Kim’s above. She manages the phones, and all people walking through the door. She is responsible for verifying all contact information and insurance information as well as getting appropriate paperwork signed. She also sets up the Instant Medical History program for the next patient to start. In between these responsibilities she also files, disperses faxes and messages, retrieves messages off the answering machine and processes most referral requests, and calls for preauthorizaitons for medications and radiologic studies. Preauthorizations can generally only be processed from 9AM–5PM as Carol has time between her many duties. This necessary limitiation is why we request 7 days advanced notice for referrals. Carol is also available by e-mail for referral requests @ . Remember, it is possible, although unlikely, for e-mails to be intercepted, so do not include confidential information.
