Q&A: Patricia Goldstrom jumps in where needed

Coaches appreciate having players on the roster who can jump into a different position, when needed. Depending on the sport, these types of players have different titles, such as “utility players” or “multi-position players,” but their purpose is the same, which is to provide competitive flexibility and ensure success.


The same is true in an office setting. Here at Blue Ridge Orthopaedics, our office staff takes pride in operating efficiently to provide the best possible patient care. Just like a sports team, flexibility is key in some situations. When a quick shift is needed, Patricia Goldstrom is one of the multi-position players on our team who can jump to a different department and make a significant contribution. Keep reading for our Staff Spotlight Q&A with Patricia.
