Debi Karam is the Office Manager for Physicians Immediate Care at the Morningside location in Port St Lucie and our newest office in Jensen Beach. Debi has been with Physician’s Immediate Care since December 2005. She started off at the Morningside office as a Patient Service Representative part time for several months, hired as a full time employee and was promoted to Manager of the Paar Office 2 years later in 2007. She has just celebrated her 10 year anniversary with Physician’s Immediate Care in December 2015.
A New York native, she was born and raised in the Bronx and also resided in Yonkers in Westchester County. Debi moved to Florida with her 2 daughters, Danielle and Toni in 1999 to start a new life here with her family. She was the owner/operator of the “Ice Cream and Yogurt Store”, next to the Regency Cinema in Stuart for several years.
Her interest in the medical field began as a Volunteer Candy Striper at the Albert Einstein Hospital in the Bronx when she was in High School. Her medical career then started at Montefiore Hospital in New York as a Medical Transcriptionist in the Pathology Department. She also worked as a Behavioral Technician for the St Lucie County, FL School Board for several years before starting her current adventure here at Physicians Immediate Care.
Debi still resides in Port St Lucie with her two Chihuahuas, “Peanut and Bandit”. Both daughters followed in their mothers footsteps… Danielle (a former employee of Physicians Immediate Care for several years) now works for the Martin County School Board and just became a Registered Behavioral Technician and Toni works at Advanced Chiropractic.
