February 2011

A message from Dr. Hasick

I take this opportunity to wish you a healthy, happy and prosperous year.

We have already completed the first month in 2011. For most of us, it was a busy holiday season and then right back into work, school and other events, and now February!

Turning the calendar into the New Year often is a time for reflection and also seems to be a time for "New Year's resolutions". A New Year's resolution is really a refocusing to create an intention on what is most important. This might be a change that we might want to make, some improvement in the quality of our lives. This is an important thing to do and taking time to reflect on this is worthwhile. The key to success seems to be taking the time to revisit your goal periodically to sustain your momentum.

A patient recently shared a statement with me that I feel is very true. "When we have our health we have 1000 wishes, when we don't have our health, we have 1 wish."

We have been privileged to help support the health and well being of many people over the past 30 years. I have seen, firsthand, how this has profoundly impacted the quality of their lives. I know this because I have heard many stories of the experiences shared by patients who come in periodically for maintenance care. They often come in just to check to make sure their alignment and function continue throughout the course of their lives. Yes, preventative care and maintenance care do make a difference in one's quality of life.

We are in the process of making our own changes at the clinic this year and we have many exciting new programs and services that we will be offering. As these new programs and services unfold, we will keep you posted.

The first change is a new booking and billing software. We have installed this software this week. When you call to schedule your appointment, it may take a bit more effort to process your booking so we ask for your understanding as we make the transition to our new process.

For some of you, you have had the opportunity to meet Dr. Jordan Ausmus, our newest associate doctor. He graduated about a year ago and joined the clinic shortly afterwards in January of 2010. Recently, he and his wife Robyn entered into a contest "My Rona Home" and have become the successful participants in a reality TV show featuring them building their dream home. As a result, his presence in the clinic is less frequent and his presence on set building his new home has become a greater focus for January and February. You can see more about him and his project at www.myronahome.com.

Monday 4:00 - 6:45 p.m.

I am very grateful for all of the staff and doctors at the Britannia Clinic. As I reflect back across many years of practice, I am very aware of the dedication and sincerity that each staff member has in providing the best care for each and every one of our patients. I know they work very hard to assist you with your appointments, insurance forms, and other special needs. I express my deep appreciation and say thank you for their service to our patients.



We live in the information age. It is helpful to have information; however, I believe we have also arrived at a time when there is an excess amount of information that can be conflicting. This can be, at times, more confusing than being easy and clear. A significant role we play at the clinic is to provide clarity to the complex information that influences your health and well-being. Our goals are simple; to provide you with the best care, education and support tools to help you maintain your natural health and well-being throughout your lifetime. It is our goal to help you make sense of your problem and find solutions to support your health.

Whether you attend to an acute problem you have, or simply for maintenance care to ensure your ongoing health and well-being are maintained, all of us here look forward to seeing you sometime this year.

I thank-you for your confidence in our care and our clinic. May you all have a healthy, happy and prosperous year.
