PUMPKINS GIVE YOU GAS?

The month of October 2015 is Patient Appreciation.  When you come in for your appointment during the month of October, you’ll get a ticket to write down a guess of the weight of the pumpkin in the waiting room. At the end of the month, we will see who guessed the closest to the weight of the pumpkin and they will win a $20.00 gas card.  There will also be a random drawing for Relaxation Therapy.  Good Luck and hope to see you there.
