I know it has been a while since my blog.  I guess, life has a way of distracting us all at times and I’m really excited to back at my keyboard pecking away!  Yesterday, the staff of Sowell Podiatry sat down for an extended meeting to discuss where we are…and where we want to be.  Constant evaluation and improvement is one of our core values and it was fun to meet and discuss exactly what our core values are.  I will be blogging about them for a while and would love to get any input you might have for us.

We also kicked around many ideas for the practice to reduce waiting times, to be more informative for our patients and new ways to help our diabetic patients avoid severe foot complications.  So hang on, because I believe that Sowell Podiatry is only getting better.  Let us know what you think over the weeks to come!
