Caryle Johnson, M.H.A. — Patient Coordinator / Practice Manager
Caryle brings 20 years of patient coordinator experience to Dr. Lawrence Iteld’s practice. In 2014, she joined the team after a long tenure working for the late Dr. Rodger Wade Pielet. From the moment a patient enters our office, Caryle is there to guide them throughout their journey, making sure each patient feels heard and understood, as well as knows the options available to meet their specific needs. One of the things she loves most is seeing how much patients’ sense of self can improve after having a procedure, and she values going through the journey with them. Caryle is loyal, hardworking, and friendly, bringing these qualities to the office each and every day. Patients come to love Caryle easily, and she becomes a very trusted person in their lives, striving for the goal of each patient leaving the office with a smile. Caryle holds a master of health administration degree and a bachelor’s degree in business, both from Saint Louis University.
