For a while, Fyzical El Paso didn’t have a program of this sort. Whenever we take on something new, we want to make sure we have all the resources we need tomake it as successful andhigh-quality for our patients as possible – and for a while, we didn’t. At Fyzical El Paso, we like to take our time to ensure we are doing everything right. It can sometimes be a very long process! It all started a few years back when a patient came to us seeking help for pelvic health.

Bonus: how are your new year resolutions coming along?

At Fyzical El Paso, we like to hold each other accountable. I had stated in a previous newsletter that my resolution for the new year is to read more. Well, I am currently on my fourth book of the year and I wanted to share a little with you. I am currently reading The Price We Pay by Marty Makary. This book is a factual display of the public healthcare system and the abuses of it. It is uncomfortable but important, especially in times such as these, to understand the way healthcare works. If you are interested in giving this book a read, I highly recommend it – we will discuss it further in a future newsletter. Stay healthy and safe, and don’t hesitate to call Fyzical El Paso if you are in need of assistance. - Luis, Fyzical El Paso
