Ask a Doc – Happy Holidays!

The holiday season is a time for gathering with family and friends to celebrate with the people who matter the most. It’s also a nice time to reflect on what we’re grateful for. Before we all get swept up in the stress and expectations as well as the laughter and love of the holidays, we want to share with you a few of the many reasons we are grateful.

“I am thankful every day that my best friend and soulmate has beat the cancer odds and is still with us. I am thankful for our four healthy children and wonderful family. I am thankful that Hurricane Ian and the Pandemic have not taken more lives than they might have. I am thankful for the trust the Boca Grande community has in our dedication to provide their healthcare.”

Dr. Raymond James, D.O., Medical Director

“I am most grateful for friends and family during this holiday season. I remember fondly family members and friends that have passed on, and new ones that have come into my life.”

Dr. Bret Kueber. M.D.

“I am thankful for my health and for the wonderful people around me. I feel very blessed to be here in this moment at this time and place. I hope that I always remember how lucky I am to be here.”

Emily Haly, M.D.

“I am grateful to our stellar physicians for the care and compassion they provide our patients. And I am extremely grateful to the entire Clinic staff, whose constant push for excellence allows the Clinic to perform above national benchmarks for patient quality and satisfaction. I’m thankful to the Clinic board members for their guidance and support. I look forward to working with you all as we embark on the journey of building the Clinic of the Future. The future is so bright thanks to you.”

Mark Driscoll, CEO
