To Our Staff:
Generally, Labor Day passes all too quickly as the third day off in a three-day weekend. This year, however, I want to remind you that Labor Day is a time to recognize the laborer. That’s you. I would like to express my gratitude to all of you for doing your jobs honestly and efficiently this past year. Indeed, each of you plays an important role in this optometric practice and contributes to our collective success. Please accept my best wishes for each of you and have a safe and fun three-day weekend!
Happy New Year from Dr. Daniel Yamamoto, Dr. Tracie Inouchi and Staff.
