Meet Jana Boudreau

Thursday, November 10, 2011


Meet Jana Boudreau. Jana has been Dr. Holt’s secretary for the past 26 years, even before EMG existed. She started out with Dr. Holt and Dr. Serrage in their first practice together on Park Avenue in Portland, Eye Physicians and Surgeons, and has worked for Dr. Holt ever since. She was 8 months pregnant with her first child when EMG’s current location on Sewall St was built in 1987. “We thought the place was huge at the time. We had what we called “future rooms” which were rooms that we didn’t know what we were going to do with yet,” said Jana. At that time, each secretary did their own doctors transcription, as well as all the billing and collections, and there were only 4 physicians in the practice. A lot has changed since then- EMG has grown to 9 physicians and a fully staffed billing department that has 5 full time employees!!!

Jana is still Dr. Holt’s secretary and continues to do his transcription. She has recently taken on the added responsibility of becoming Dr. Shah’s secretary as well.

Jana continues to be a great source of Eyecare Medical Group history. She has seen literally thousands of patients walk through the front door, many doctors and technicians come and go over the years, several remodels of our current building, and she saw Dr. Serrage, with whom she had worked for 26 years, retire last year.

Thank you for your dedication, Jana!!!
