Q: What does Ocala mean to you?
A: To me, 0cala is a melting pot. We have a very diverse community here which makes working with people even more enjoyable. We have the locals that grew up here, those who are here after retiring from the north, and people of all ages that are moving from South Florida looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the southern cities.
Q: What most prominent quality makes a successful leader?
A: My proactive approach and leading by example. Customer service is key. Spending time with patients is key. I try to make my patients feel like they are part of our family versus just a number and hope that my staff recognizes that and follows my lead.
