"Your imagination is your preview of life's coming attractions."
We're blessed to be able to enjoy four really beautiful changes of season here in Kentucky! I sometimes have to stop and remind myself not to let each one pass me by without my taking the time to notice and to enjoy all that an approaching new season has to offer. Each new season is a time of change...change in the landscape and in the nature that surrounds us...changes in the number of daylight hours we have to spend outside...shifting our lives to more time spent indoors...changes in the lives of our loved ones and families...it's a constantly changing world.
My family spent last weekend readying our neighbors' barn and pastures for the arrival of two of our horses for a new winter home, and I realized the change in our lives that this will bring...more early mornings for the girls who will be responsible for the morning feedings now...the beauty we will behold as we watch our beloved boys playing in our neighbors' beautiful pastures through the winter...our children are getting older and learning more responsibilities, and with this will come new challenges and changes for us. (Tom, you're still teaching them to drive, right?)
I personally LOVE change, which may come as a surprise to those who believe that doctors are creatures of habit and hate change. I certainly like the stability of tried and true techniques which lead to predictability of results, and following routines in clinical practice that leave very little room for error or surprises for patients, but when it comes to being creative... for always striving to deliver an even better patient experience...we absolutely MUST leave our minds and hearts open to change. We need to look for ways to answer more of our patients' common needs...deliver better quality of care in more comfortable or affordable ways. This is certainly something I spend considerable time and effort in thinking about, and I enjoy the opportunity to share these ideas with more new patients every week...as well as with many of our older, more established patients in the practice...and I hope that I get the chance to continue to do this for many more years.
Changes we plan for the practice coming up really soon include evolution to electronic records systems, the addition of new non-invasive treatments for rejuvenation of the problematic face and neck, and a new location for the practice next year. We are also hoping to explore new ways of interacting with you to learn more about what issues our patients are facing, and how we might help. Please feel free to contact me or my staff through our website, by calling the office to chat with us, or by suggesting new ideas for the Blog or for upcoming activities you'd like to see us offer!
