Howdy out there!
I am really excited that this chapter in my new life is starting! I have been thinking about going out on my own for a long time and finally the time was right. I let my partners know a couple of weeks ago that I was leaving and things have been happening quickly ever since. I have approved my space design for my new office and have started the process to switch over my address with the insurers. I have chosen my electronic medical record and started choosing the furniture for the new office.
My new office is just west of Somerset North and the old KMart World Headquaters on Big Beaver, between Adams and Coolidge in the Sheffield Office Complex.
Here’s a link to a map of the new location
I am planning on doing so many new things! I will have an emphasis on wellness including info in my office and on my website about healthy eating, physical activities for people of all abilities, and mental and emotional health. One of the things I love most about my practice life is getting to know the whole family. I love seeing parents and children all changing and growing over the years and when times are great, sharing in that joy and when times are challenging, providing support and guidance.
The office itself is different too. The reception area will not serve as a waiting room. Families will come in and be greeted by my staff who will escort you to the rooms which are outfitted with couches, chairs, books, and a tv. I will come in promptly and have our meeting after which you can complete check out in the room and schedule any follow up appointments right there while sitting on the couch. No more cattle call waiting rooms, no more extended wait times. My mission is to provide excellent care in a homey setting that will be comfortable for parent and child alike. I want families to enjoy coming in, as much as that is possible, and leave without the stress of long waits in crowded waiting rooms and then longer waits in stark and sterile exam rooms.
