DeAna Duffey – Chief Executive Officer

DeAna began her career with Practice Management Group in 2003, starting in the mail room, working her way through each department, serving now as Executive Vice President and COO.  Ground up experience offers valuable knowledge of how each department impacts our clients and their revenue.  DeAna offers both clinical and business experience in multiple disciplines of medicine which include Surgery, Anesthesia, Pain Management, Family Medicine, Hyperbaric Medicine,and Respiratory Care.

Subsequent to her experience as a Surgical Assistant at Richland Memorial Medical Center, DeAna’s employment with McLeod Regional offered administrative experience in Respiratory Care and resulted in developing billing guidelines for both in and outpatient encounters.   McLeod’s implementation of a multidisciplinary Pain Management program utilized DeAna’s experience to build a database of charges related to Pain Management encounters.

DeAna has worked closely with medical providers for twenty-eight years giving PMG a front row seat of the ever evolving clinical and business challenges medical practices face.
