2019 Falcon Breeding Seasons Is Here!

Hi everyone!

Most of you already know my family’s primary occupation is falcon breeding.

Bright and early this morning I was called to the farm for this breeding season’s 1st artificial insemination.  As every year, this means I’m now officially on call for the farm and I will be called away from the clinic, at multiple times throughout the day for the 3 to 4 months.


This notice is just a reminder that like each year past, if you arrive for your appointment a few minutes earlier than scheduled and I am not around, please know that I will here on time as scheduled!   Make yourself comfortable while you wait.

As usual, I very much appreciate your understanding with this.

I am wishing you all only the very best of this year’s spring and summer!

Chrystal

Happy New Years!

I have a few announcements and I’m making some major changes in how I work in the clinic this year, mostly with how I schedule appointments. Here are the updates that you should know about:

Appointment Scheduling Changes
As mandated by our college, included in all appointment booking times is your intake interview and assessment, treatment time, homecare or remedial exercise instruction and billing.  In the past, I’ve booked myself 15 minutes off between each appointment. This was meant to give me a small break between patients, or to catch up if I fell behind in the other things, but I’m finding it’s totally unnecessary. It means my work days are much longer than they need to be, and scheduling times are complicated with start times in 15-minute increments throughout the day. (I often struggle to remember what time an appointment started!)
