Wow!  I didn't realize just how long it'd been since I was last in the field with our PRCs!  Kind of got off track a little in May and June with last-minute clinic changes, but we're back!

Nicole and I hit the road to visit doctors in the Warrenton area.  This is probably the furthest out that I have ever been.

Our first stop was to meet Drs. Samuel Weir, Shannon Colbourne, and Heidi Calladine.  What a great office remodel!  While I have known Drs. Colbourne and Calladine before, this was my first time to meet Dr. Weir.  What a complete pleasure.

Dr. Nina Bhat is a new affiliate.  I'm hoping she can work her schedule around to visit the Center on a surgery day.  With a little creativity, I'm sure it could be done.  Dr. Holzman really enjoys meeting his new Affiliates in person.  Plus, it's a great time to ask clinical questions that can help you manage refractive surgery patients.

I like this new trend that Nicole started when we visited Dr. Priyanka Patel's office.  We took our picture with the staff, although it did take a little bit of coaxing.  We did fit in a little bit of clinical discussion, as Dr. Patel is a new affiliate also, but mostly she gave me advice on good TV shows to watch on Netflix.  She's already indicated interest in attending our New Affiliate Night where select doctors are invited to visit the Center to go over protocols, learn more about the Pentacam and Wavescan, plus actually fire the laser.

On our way back up to the Fairfax area, we stopped in Clifton to visit Dr. Edwin Adair.  I can't remember a time when I've laughed more.  And, much love for Dr. Adair for mentioning that he has OD Central bookmarked on his browser.  Hooray!

Even though Dr. Melissa MacDonald practices with her husband associated with my Costco, surprisingly enough, I have never met her in person before.  Whenever I go there, I have to be very strategic and focused so that I don't buy too many things on impulse.  I very impressed with the organization of the office.  

Thanks for hanging out with me all day, Nicole!  - jw
