Veteran's Day. Our chance to express our gratitude for those who have served our country. Yes, we can (and should) do that any day, but it's a special day of the year to thank those who carried the weight of freedom on their shoulders.
With clinics in Central Texas, there's a large current and former military population we serve. And we thank those patients who put their trust in us. We strive to treat them like family everyday.
It also means we have several veterans on our team who serve Pro-Care and our patients across a variety of roles. From providers to rehab techs to front desk and IT, we lean on our talented crew to deliver the absolute best primary and chiropractic care to our patients each day.
I had asked our veterans to share a bit of their stories. Most were probably a bit too humble to share too much detail. But what I can glean from their responses is that their collective military experience taught teamwork, compassion, grit, adaptability, responsiveness, attention to detail, selflessness, and service. Character traits that build the best.
So, meet a few of our veterans on Team Pro-Care. And next time you're in one of clinics, tell'em thanks. Because they're our nation's best:
Dr. Elizabeth Clark, DO - Doctor at Pro-Care Crownpoint. Retired Colonel after serving 25 years in the U.S. Air Force.
David Muehe, MPA - Advanced practitioner at Pro-Care Palo Alto. Served in the 149th Air Fighter Wing & the Texas Air National Guard.
Kathy Collins - Central Austin front desk admin. Served in the U.S. Air Force.
Thomas Grau - Central Austin clinic front desk, IT, business analyst. Served in the U.S. Air Force.
Jimmy Contreras - Rehab tech, San Antonio. Served in the U.S. Army.
