New Patient Intake Forms

I never find joy in filling out new patient in take forms.  I always seem to find that there is not enough room for, well, anything.  Perhaps it is because I write too large, but there is not enough room for my full name, or my complete street address, city and state.  I start writing… Continue reading New Patient Intake Forms

Better than Before

Often, I get these grand ideas.  Ideas about all the wonderful things that I can and should do.  To be honest, I am not sure what exactly it is.  Excessive motivation?  Obsessed with improving my overall well-being? I read Gretchen Rubin’s book, Better than Before, twice. (https://gretchenrubin.com/books/better-than-before/about-the-book/ ) It was an informative read the first… Continue reading Better than Before
