“We gave a lot of thought as to why we exist as an office – it’s two parts – our patient care which is very comprehensive and our support of each other and our professions. This is what we came up with:
In service of our patients: Overall health and well-being (physical, mental, spiritual) through building relationships, trust, education, and service.
In service of our team members: As a team, we will support your education to such a level that you will feel empowered to change lives in a work environment that you feel honored and valued for your abilities and knowledge.”
