Our 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
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!
