Through this transition, she first convinced her father to work for the company as a pillar of experience and knowledge as well as bring in other associate doctors to help better serve our patients and the community. Because of our mission and the results we get with patients – the office has now become a coveted place and position for interns from schools all over the country wanting to learn and observe our processes for patient care.
