About Our Staff



Practice Manager

Elyce assists Dr. Thanik and Dr. Nassiri in all surgical procedures and joined our team in 2005. She enjoys coming to work every day and always has our patient's best interests in mind. She balances her high quality of care with levity by knowing when to have fun at work. Working side-by-side with both doctors has given Elyce many opportunities to learn from their experience and allows her to view how much they care about each patient they see.

Elyce loves living in Portland and taking advantage of all this area has to offer. She has a supportive group of family and friends and considers herself to be extremely blessed.
