“When God blessed us with this practice in 2012, I quickly became overwhelmed. As with most blessings, especially life-long ones, Satan will try to steal the joy right out of it. And it’s true, there are is a lot of stress that comes with owning your own practice, but it is my choice whether or not to focus on the stress or focus on Jesus. I chose to focus on Jesus. He came to give us life and to live it more abundantly. (John 10:10) My philosophy to running a successful business is to keep God first, continually ask for His wisdom, and love our patients as Jesus does. I pray you enjoy your experience with us and hope that you would email me if your experience is anything less than extraordinary. Thank you for supporting local!"
