Q: Are you what you wanted to be when you grew up?
A: Not yet, but I am getting there!

Q: Around the office is there one question you get asked a lot?
A: Yes! I am always asked “Has anyone ever told you, you look like Selena Gomez?”. It’s fun.

Well, we can tell there is a resemblance…

A: Come prepared at your next visit with a list a present and/or past symptoms, and any related questions.

Q: We ask everyone to share a funny story about times in the office.  What is one of your stories?
A: Last Christmas season, I asked many kids what they wanted from Santa.  Most said the usual…toys, bikes and dolls.  One particular boy, who was 3 years old, caught me off guard by saying “an iPad”.  Needless to say, I asked him to ask Santa to send me one too!

That is pretty funny Briana!  Thank you for sharing a little of you today!
