Well, it has been way too long since my last blog. Busy, busy, busy…
I am sure you have read in Dr. D.’s blogs, things are changing a bit at the clinic. The new conference consultation room is working out wonderfully. We now have a huge white board in the room. One of the principles of Naturopathic Medicine is Docere, which means Doctor as Teacher. Those of you that have visited the clinic have noticed the student interns that are a part of your consultation team. They are there to learn. What I think this white board represents is that patients are there to learn also, and we are ready to teach them. What an amazing concept! How many visits to the doctor have you experienced an educational lesson in medicine and nutritional as it applies to you personally?
I have begun working on a clinic newsletter for patients. We hope to have the first issue finished before spring. Also, we have a new addition to the clinic staff. Barbara has joined us as receptionist. She has just about finished her first week with us. She is doing a great job as she learns the ropes. It is clear already what a wonderful part of the team she is. You may have also noticed or spoke with Carol at the clinic. Carol is the General Manager at North American Pharmacal. She has been giving us a hand at the clinic, as well as helping familiarize Barbara with the day to day clinic operations. (What a gem! Thanks Carol :-) )
Once the new book came out, I began to pester Dr. D. about writing the new Genotype SWAMI software. Maybe even before the book came out. ;-) He has been writing his numerous lines of code, and has been showing me the progress as it is made. First, I can’t believe how fast he is able to create a program of this magnitude. Second, this program is more than I could have ever dreamed possible! I don’t know how he does it, but boy oh boy am I glad he does! I can hardly wait to begin using this amazing tool with clinic patients!
