Multiple Affiliate visits with Joan today

Finally got a chance to visit several Affiliates today while out in the field with Joan today.  I haven't gone out with Joan as much as I have wanted to, but one things for sure:  it's always beautiful weather when we're together!

Joan has the lovely distinction of representing three of the Top 20 TLC Affiliates in North America for 2011.  The list just came out yesterday, and we got to deliver the wonderful news to two of them today: Dr. Frank Cassella in Vienna, VA, and Dr. Mahtab Vaziri in Reston, VA.  (The third Affiliate does not yet know, so I'm keeping the name hush, hush!).  Great job, Drs. Cassella and Vaziri!

Thanks also to Dr. Scott Barron of Herndon, VA, for taking the time to speak to us.  I actually overheard you give quite a great explanation of how contact lens abuse can affect ones eyes.  The patient you were talking to had been using 1 month contact lenses for well over that recommended change schedule.

And, it's always great to make my way to Herndon, VA, to visit with Drs. Tom Finley and Sara Jones.  We arrived at an amazingly busy time which made your efforts to speak with us even more appreciated. - jw

I'm trying out this new photo feature where the program helps me create a collage.  Featured are Dr. Cassella (middle picture), Dr. Vaziri (top right), and Dr. Barron (bottom right). 

Hey, how did that left most picture show up in there?  The tan dog is my Cairn Terrier, Pepper, who we have had for 4 years since her adoption from the Fairfax County Animal Shelter.  We decided to get her a friend, a Dachshund who is still in his one-week trial from the Dachshund Rescue of North America.  Looks like things are going well so far, so hopefully little Sergeant has found his "forever home"!
