Life is hectic. Sometimes we forget what’s important. So let me step back and take just a moment to thank our many wonderful patients who have made our practice such a success. We are not part of a huge clinic or hospital chain so we really depend on our loyal patients and their kind referrals of friends and family members.
But it’s not just coming in for appointments that we appreciate, it’s the trust our patients bestow on us. Many of our patients have pretty complex eye problems. They may be considering eye surgery or have medical conditions like diabetes or glaucoma. They trust our doctors to manage their care and follow our suggestions to improve their sight. They understand that medical care is a partnership; we can’t come home with them to put their eye drops in!
What are our goals for the New Year? We plan to continue our 18 year tradition of providing the most advanced eye care available to our patients here in Ozaukee County and beyond. We plan to continue to emphasize customer service so our patients don’t feel like a commodity. We also will start the painful transition to electronic medical records!
Another goal is education. We want you to be aware of options for your vision care. One source of information is this column. Another is our newly expanded web site and associated blog about eye care. And don’t forget about becoming a “Fan” of ours on Facebook.
Bring on 2011! We’re ready for it. Are you?
