As we celebrate our 20-Year Anniversary in June, I marvel at how quickly time passes. It seems that it was only a moment ago when I ventured out on my own and with Colleen and Tracie’s help started The Whole Child Pediatrics. We opened our doors to our first patients on June 1, 1998 and celebrated with an Open House party inviting friends, family, patients, parents and physician colleagues. As shown by these pix, everyone had a good time.
Our first patient was Samantha Thomas, now a 20-year old freshman at Cincinnati State Technical and Community College. The first pictures show Samantha at 1 week and 3 months of age. The second picture is of Samantha and her mother Trina Lopez. Trina met the many challenges of motherhood, helping Samantha become a mature young woman and guiding her toward college and a career path.
The years have been good ones for us, filled with joy in taking care of our patients and their families. Cheryl joined our staff in 2003, a wonderful and sweet addition to help Colleen and Tracie. And in 2005, we were fortunate to have both Dr. Crawford and Kristina join our practice, both of whom brought their unique perspective to our practice and patients. Brittany and LaTanya joined our staff in the past 2-3 years and have been a great addition to our office.
These past 20 years have been filled with hard work and joy. Caring for our patients and their families has been the driving force that has kept us going. Watching our babies grow and become young adults some with children of their own (many of whom are now our new “babies”), has made it all worthwhile. They have grown into successful young adults, becoming architects, engineers, doctors, nurses, artists, dancers, business owners, psychologists, teachers, college professors, firefighters, homemakers, etc. Many of our patients, both men and women, have joined the military, some as officers. They are serving our country well. We have a special fondness for our patients, new and old, and no matter how old they get, they will always be our “babies”.
It has been our distinct privilege to have taken care of our many patients and their families over the past 20 years. Thank you all for allowing us into your lives.
