Frisbee   Hands down, Frisbee wins our Most Valued Player award year after year. He brings a special warmth and loyal dedication to our office that we can’t imagine doing without. Taking his role as morale booster and confidante very seriously, Frisbee happily greets patients and helps our therapists do their work. In fact, we suspect many of our patients are coming here only to see him! An attentive and wise listener, Frisbee has never failed to help us make difficult decisions with a challenging diagnosis. In honor of his special place in our hearts, Frisbee is given free rein of the office and we designated a special spot for his well-deserved naps throughout the day.  In his off time, Frisbee chases tennis balls, enjoys taking hikes and even likes to spend quality time with Spunky and Clementine, our two cats. He allows our chickens to live freely - provided they stay out of his food dish. At 11 ½ years old, we still have to keep Frisbee from “roaming” but he’s getting easier to catch! Make sure to put your best foot forward and say hello to Frisbee when you come to see us
