Leslie Petsoff oversees operations of PlasticityⓇ Atlanta. Leslie orchestrates administrative affairs, maintains relationships with community partners, and organizes participation in community events. She ensures that patients have an excellent experience that extends beyond the treatment rooms. She enjoys the hospitality aspect of her job and loves helping patients find the right hotel or a perfect spot for lunch. From the first phone call to staying in touch years later, Leslie is always a friendly presence in the office.
Leslie loves watching families transform from patients to PlasticityⓇ family members. She strives to create a feeling of warmth often missing from clinical settings. The Atlanta center recently had a soccer player return home from college for a week of concussion treatment with Dr. Duffy. Her mother mentioned to Leslie that she’d be with us for her 21st birthday. Leslie surprised the patient with a mini-party, complete with handmade decorations and fancy, gluten-free doughnuts. After the hardships our patients have faced, it’s important that they receive not just phenomenal clinical care, but also true connection. Leslie enjoys caring for our patients in this way, and the team considers her kindness to be part of the healing journey.
