HOW THANKFUL I AM FOR ALL OF YOU Trying My Best to Put Into Words

I wish I could fully express my gratitude to everybody who deserves it in the space of this article, but I don’t know if that’s possible. That said, I’ll try my best to hit the highlights. Another year is almost done, and, with Thanksgiving and the holiday season fast approaching, I wanted to take this opportunity to reflect on the people and things in my life I’m thankful for. education. Shyal went to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Sabrina went to Loyola University. At the same time, my oldest son, Shaun, started his second year at the University of Wisconsin. I’m incredibly thankful for the ways my kids are learning and growing and that the ethics and values I’ve instilled in them are serving them well. Shaun currently has a 4.0 GPA, and, as an extra step into being more responsible, he’s living off-campus this year in an apartment with three roommates. All my kids are flying with their own wings now, and it’s incredible. Even though she actually started a new career this year, I want to express my gratitude for Izabela, who, for 12 years, was an indispensable member of the Primary Eye Care Associates team. When she first started working here, she had no experience in the eye care field. Earlier this year, both of my twins began their journeys into higher

Over time, however, Izabela proved to be a hard worker and a fast learner. By the end of her time at Primary Eye Care Associates, she was my right hand and could handle any workload we threw at her. Earlier this year, she left to take a position in the fitness and wellness industry, which had always been a goal of hers. We are all happy she gets a chance to pursue her dream,

Associates team. I honestly can’t put into words how blessed I am to receive the support I do inside and outside of the office. A lot of my family still lives in Canada, which makes it hard to visit them sometimes. So, my team has become like part of my family, inviting us to their weddings, their baby showers, and other gatherings. I don’t always feel like I do the best job at thanking my team, but I hope I’ve done an okay job here. Finally, I want to thank all our patients for trusting us with your eye care over the years, and we hope to continue doing so for many more years. Some of you come from as far away as Canada, California, Arizona, England, and even Australia. We are honored that, even after moving away from the Chicago area, you still find time to stop in for exams when you’re back in town. Some of you have been with us since the start of my career, a huge vote of confidence for me and my team that we hope to continue working to deserve. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, and until next time, eye’ll see you then! – Dr. Steven Chander

and I’m thankful for the role I got to play in pushing her to succeed here and elsewhere. Some patients still request her as their eye care professional, and she comes in on her days off to spend time with us here. Of course, I can’t talk about Izabela without talking about how thankful I am for the rest of the Primary Eye Care
