I drove myself to a nearby hardware store and said, "Make 3 copies of this key, please." The date was April 24, 2014.The key was to a dream come true; I was finally opening my very own walk-in medical clinic in Greenville, South Carolina.
For certain, my prayer was answered.
I was scared and nervous. Excited and sleepless...all over the same nagging, unanswerable questions. What if nobody shows up? What if EVERYBODY shows up? And all at the very same moment? What if the building renovations aren't ready in time? Dear Lord, please help me get through this so I can start healing those who need me most.
For certain, my prayer was answered. To date, Greenville Medical Clinic has seen over 300 kind and grateful people...from all walks of life...with all kinds of illnesses - chronic and otherwise. Some have little or no income. Many in the neighborhood are seniors or older. Most are uninsured or have very high deductibles and suffer the consequences of poor health, due to inadequate medical attention...until now. At GMC, we believe people have the right to be healthy. At just $20 per visit, we give them that chance every day.
I hope you'll continue to check out these personal postings from me, to you. Of late, I've been attending special Diabetes conferences in Charlotte. I've been asked to share my knowledge of health care, from a Nurse Practitioner's point of view, at a variety of different seminars in and around Greenville. If I'm not in an exam room taking care of you, or someone you may know, you can be sure I'm out discovering new and smarter ways to help my patients feel good. Stay healthy. And live better.
Until next time, here's to your good health!
