My favorite thing about working here is the patients and staff. I love the kiddos and we have so many incredible people here but I have to be totally honest and say I love having Rhett in our office. He provides laughs, love, and I think we can all agree he sets the bar high in regards to work ethic!! I’m just so happy to be back and look forward to making positive contribution to the medical team! I also enjoy long walks on the beach and star gazing, lol!
