Darrek, Office Manager

Darrek started at Carlsbad Open MRI back in 2005, only 2 weeks after we opened. 

He is trained as a MA, phlebotomist and x-ray.

His favorite thing about working at Carlsbad Open MRI is that he is able to provide friendly service and meet all of his patients needs.

Being extremely claustrophobic himself, Darrek is really able to empathize with his patients and coach them along the process.

Some of his favorite things to do during his free time is camping, fishing, traveling, as well as, spending time with his children.

Kara, MRI Technologist

Kara came to Carlsbad Open MRI 6.5 years ago and possesses her degree in radiological technology from New Mexico State University.

Kara also has a national certification for x-ray and MRI.

Her favorite thing about being at Carlsbad Open MRI is that she feels like she’s helping the patient in their first step to receiving the medical help they need.

She also loves that Carlsbad feels more personal than most offices, and it doesn’t have that “medical feel” when you walk in.

Some of Kara’s favorite things include working on her house, being married, and traveling.
