Resumption of Surgery and Office Visits
I want to thank my many patients who reached out to me over the last few months – it was profoundly moving and reminded me of how strong a bond I have been lucky to form with so many wonderful people many of whom just happen to also be my patients.
I am pleased to announce that we have resumed our full surgery schedule as of June 8 and our full schedule of regular office visits will resume as of June 22.
