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

Blank Pages

I sit and stare at a blank page. Thoughts dash through my head, darting left and right, up and down. With all that’s going through my head one would think that I would be more than capable of transposing the combination of letters into sentences down on paper. But alas, the page is blank.
