Sylvia Landry, RN, CMLT, Retires June 12, 2017

Something new and bittersweet for Pima Dermatology ... We announce our very first retirement! As a Cosmetic Associate, Sylvia Landry, RN, CMLT, has provided exemplary care to thousands of patients at Pima Dermatology since 2007. She has had an extraordinary 50-year career in nursing. The last ten years were spent at Pima Dermatology and "have been the most fulfilling as a professional nurse." Sylvia adds, "the warm and supportive environment over the years" contributes to her fondness for our practice.

Her professionalism and skill have been demonstrated through her compassion, clinical expertise, and unique style. If you are one of her patients, you know of her sparkling personality, bold sense of humor, fine gift of gab, and warm personal touch.


It has been an honor working alongside Sylvia. Though we will miss her terribly, we are happy to share the excitement for her next chapter to begin. We wish Sylvia a fabulous future with her husband and enjoying well-deserved time with her family and grandchildren. Admittedly, we are a little jealous of all of the fun she will be having traveling the world, enjoying fine wine, and sleeping in!


To all of Sylvia's loyal patients, we will make this transition as smooth as possible. For Cosmetic needs, including Laser Skin Toning, Skin Freshening Peels, Laser Hair Reduction, Micro Needling, and more, our Cosmetic Team (which includes Lynne Coulter, MA, CMLT, Maria Cano, Aesthetician, CMLT, and Alma Zuniga, RN, CMLT) has immediate appointments available. Botox and Dermal Fillers are available with Sarah Schram, MD, Jennifer Allison, PA-C, and Alma Zuniga, RN, CMLT.

 

If you have questions, please contact us at 520.795.7729.
