I got this awesome blueberry picker that scoops up handfuls of blueberries! I still like to pick them by hand though. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Your pictures are breathe taking! I agree with your patients. You touch their lives because you have a gift of a healing touch! Blessings!

      • Dr. I love reading your blog I am sending this reply as a way to get in touch with you. I am currently going through the process of moving to the Nome, Alaska area to work. I would like to talk with you regarding medical care coming to you as a patient. Please advise how to contact your office.

        • Hi Randy, Thanks! There is only one clinic here–through the Norton Sound Health Corporation, and we have great staff who schedule patients for the clinic. Take care!
