Business Insight Presented by Arlington Dermatology Welcome back! I spent a lot of time discussing our community, its needs for medical services, its diversity, and its wonderful ability to support neighbors. I could not over-describe how great and cooperating everyone has been during the difficult times of 2020/2021. The pandemic caused so many problems for all of us but what we have seen was support, appreciation, respect for others and our staff, and simply being good human beings. We, in return, wanted to stay open, follow the most disciplined and restricted guidelines in protecting all of us. And serve our community and its medical needs. Skin cancer and psoriasis were not on vacation. They still bothered our patients and we needed to make sure we assisted. Today, I am happy to tell you that one of your own community members, living 2 miles from the practice for the last 30 some years, will be returning to the practice to help me assist you with your medical problems. Dr. Chris Rivard, whom some of you may remember from years ago as a clinical research coordinator, will be beginning his career as a medical doctor, right here at Arlington Dermatology. This summer, you will see him on the weekends, while he is finishing his medical residence training and next summer, he will start a regular full time schedule. Why is it so important for me to share this news with you? There are many reasons. First, and very selfish of me, I need another physician very much. Our practice has had a long rule of nobody waiting for an appointment for longer than a week, and another rule of no time wasted in the waiting room. I must admit, these two rules have been crippled recently. We try our best but sometimes cannot fulfill our promises. Having another provider will resolve the problem. Please, do not think I am complaining. We have been lucky to have a busy practice, with hundreds of new patients joining every year. We welcome them all. Our clinical research has been appreciated by the community is one of offering tremendous opportunities to many of our patients while we are still seeking better solutions for dermatology time ever working with you and assisting treatments. Having Dr. Rivard will make it all more dynamic. Secondly, there is no better match than Dr. Chris. He grew up in the community, completed his medical school at the University of Illinois, his family lives next door. Who can understand the needs of our patients and our community better? Thirdly, Dr. Rivard and I share a special love and interest in working with the aging community. I call my practice family dermatology and we are proud to serve all generations but no doubts, our seniors are the leading group among the patients. This is not only because I love seniors but also because seniors tend to have more medical needs and have them more complex than the younger population. Dr. Rivard will bring some new energy, fresh training in family medicine and dermatology, and he will walk into this practice as one of us: he never really departed. I count my blessings every day. There is not enough paper to list all of them. But serving our community and being so them. Please, welcome Dr. Rivard back to our family. Let's all wish him the best our neighbors.
