Message from the CEO

F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote "Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall." There is something invigorating in the notion, that while lost in lingering summer nostalgia and preparing for the inevitable winter chill, we can look on the bright side and begin fresh. At OWC we aim to assist our valued patients, whether embarking on a new beginning or maintaining their progress, achieve the optimal wellness that is an integral part of realizing their health goals. An open and honest dialogue can be essential when following a treatment plan. We encourage all patients to discuss their treatment plan with their provider as needed.  The comfort, well-being, and progress of our patients are of utmost importance to all OWC healthcare professionals.

As noted in our last edition, OWC has committed to ensuring that the patient experience meets and exceeds their expectations. We are always looking for new and exciting ways to offer additional service and value to our patients. I would like to take this opportunity to mention some programs currently offered at OWC that our patients may not be aware of.

Finally, I would like to take a moment and send a big thank you to the OWC Team of Clinic Assistants for your efficiency and dedication to OWC's goal of providing the best patient experience possible.  You are the backbone of our company and we would be lost without you.

As always I offer my sincere wishes to you and yours for a relaxing, healthy, and happy fall and winter.

Yours in Health,
