30 years ago in February two brothers opened their clinic. Their plan was simple: treat patients like people, not numbers or charts. Their philosophy flew in the face of current thinking which was, that in order to be more successful, doctors needed to see more patients per hour and spend less time with each one.
Did they have growing pains? You bet! As a matter of fact, their first receptionist was their mom! Yet over the years their practices grew. They remodeled, redecorated, moved and re-established themselves. But the one thing they never did was forget why they started their practices to begin with: to help patients feel and see better.
Now one of the brothers is gone. He is missed by family, friends and patients alike; but his practice lives on. The other brother continues to do what he loves and has always tried to stay true to their early beginnings; treat one patient at a time and give the best care possible.
At this juncture in my career, I wish to thank my family for all their support and my terrific patients for trusting in me. I am looking forward to many more years to continue to both maintain and always earn that trust. Thank you.
