Masks Optional

Wearing a mask while inside the practice is optional at this time.  We respect the rights of anyone who wishes to continue to wear a mask, and our team will wear masks as well upon request.  Our current mask policy reflects our ongoing efforts to support the healthiest possible environment for every patient and team member, while following closely the guidance from health officials. You can have confidence that our team members are taking every effort to maintain the health and safety of our practice at this time, including sterilizing each room between each use. We thank you for your understanding as we strive to focus on the best in care as we treat a diverse group of patients including those considered to be at higher risk.  We will get through this together.

Blowing Out Candles For Our Veterans By Emilio Justo on November 11, 2014

Every year, on my birthday, our community holds a parade.

No, it's not for me.

But it is humbling.

You see, my birthday falls on Veteran's Day. Every year, as my close-knit family gathers around to celebrate my birth, it is on a day when our entire nation - including my family - stops to honor our veterans.

My birthday could not have fallen on a more perfect day.

My family also struggled to earn our status as American citizens, when my parents brought me here as a small child, from Cuba. I never took a minute of my life as an American for granted.

I know, and I am reminded every birthday, of the sacrifice our veterans made for us all to live in the freedom we all enjoy.

So today I humbly ask for a birthday gift.

It's in the form of a moment of silence, where I simply ask that you stop to thank our veterans of every war and even in times of peace - and to thank their families, for the sacrifices they made. Take a moment to appreciate all that we have, and those who gave it to us.

To all of the veterans and their families: Thank you.

I hope you can all join me, and my family, in a slice of cake.
