Keep up the great work

April 6th, 2020 | Categories: Uncategorized

A week ago, I sent a grim but important warning to the Newport Beach community and beyond about an ungratifying but necessary solution to the novel coronavirus. While colleagues and friends in my native New York continue to suffer, local efforts and a geographic advantage has kept the situation at bay in Orange County. So far. Please don’t give in, you are doing great.

Patiently awaiting human contact, but e-consultations are fun.

This week, Miki and I worked tirelessly to automate our online appointment scheduling system.
