I know our staff has reached out to several of you today to reschedule your appointments during this break. If we've been unable to reach you please note that if you have an appointment scheduled between 3/17/2020 and 4/3/2020 - your appointment has been cancelled. Please help us by reaching out to our office after 4/4/2020 to reschedule your appointment.
