VIP Referral Patient of the Month!

WHAT I LOOK FORWARD TO THIS SEASON THE GIFT OF QUALITY TIME

DOROTHEA CATENA

The best compliment we can receive is to have one of our patients refer a friend or family member to our practice. If you refer someone and we are able to take them as a patient, both you and the person who was referred will be entered to Win a $25 gift card! It’s just our way of saying

Last month, I mentioned how our family manages to fit in two Thanksgiving meals every year. Well, the truth is, turkey day isn’t the only holiday where this happens. Most celebrations involving food usually end up being a double feature for us these days, making this season especially filling — we all have our work cut out for us when the new year starts. In fact, Christmas has basically become a week-long affair at this point. After going to church on Christmas Eve, we go have dinner at my wife’s aunt’s house. Then on the big day itself, we visit my mother before returning home to host my mother- and sister-in-law. Some days later, we’ll visit my wife’s cousin and their kids. And, of course, each of these stops has great food and even better company. Part of the reason we drag out the celebrations so long is that we really want to make sure we visit with everyone. It’s exhausting to have a rushed Christmas running around, seeing each and every person, or trying to cram everyone together in one place. I prefer having the time to sit, relax, and talk with loved ones. I can tell my kids like that better, too. My wife’s cousin’s kids are around the same age as my daughter, and it’s interesting to see how their conversations have evolved over the years. They used to talk about toys and cartoons, but now that they’ve grown and matured more, they talk about school, sports, and their plans for the future. Time sure does fly.

I still remember when our clinic was in its first years of operation — and my daughter wasn’t that much older herself. On Fridays, I’d go pick her up from kindergarten and bring her back to the office with me. She’d walk around the office and meet patients, some of whom may remember those old days. While both my daughter and the clinic have grown since then, I’m glad to say how we care for our patients has stayed the same. In fact, it’s similar to how my family approaches the holidays. Even before I started my own practice, spending time with patients was always important to me. After all, how can you really help someone if you don’t take the time to get to know them? So, when Cornerstone Physical Therapy Health and Wellness Center opened its doors nearly 14 years ago, that principle was foundational to our success. All this time later, it hasn’t failed yet. Treating folks around this time of year is especially great because I get to hear about your own holiday feats. Those who have been my patients for a long time know I always love to chat about food — it’s one of those core things that brings people together from all walks of life. Plus, I’ve gotten some really great recipes and restaurant recommendations from these chats over the years. So, I hope you have some great meals and family gatherings this season. From our family to yours, Happy Holidays! –David DeLaFuente
