Each day I go to work, I look forward to seeing return patients, to hear how they have faired or to see what is bothering them now. I aim to hone my skills in long-term follow-up care. I especially enjoy patients whose families I have treated off and on for the last 36 years. Children have been born and raised, relationships have evolved, and people have weathered the ups and downs of life.
