Knowing the star football player personally.
Having a patient say 'Thank You" for saving their life.
Starting the day with 20 patients on the schedule and ending
with 36 because we worked in 16 sick children.
Taking care of your preacher, your butcher, your banker,
and your neighbor.
Writing for the local paper in the first few years of my practice.
Beaming with pride as my patients go on to play college football
Helping deserving, hard-working students attend Space Camp.
Sponsoring the football, baseball, cheerleading, tee ball, and
other youth programs.
Hiring talented team players who live in the community and
make a difference in the community.
Advising a young lady on a positive pregnancy test.
Counseling a grieving patient on the recent loss of a loved one.
Sharing stories with patients about common themes, missed
opportunities, life lessons, and beloved canine companions.
It's called being the local family doctor.
In challenging times where doctors are selling practices and
retiring, these are just a few of the things that make it all
worthwhile. Thank you to my patients who allow me to do
what I love every day.
