Happy Thanksgiving from the Johnston Gang!

Processed with MOLDIV

We wanted to take this opportunity to wish all of our patients a Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!  We hope that you are able to enjoy some time off and spend time with family and friends.
Since it is the season…we are also sharing a delicious pumpkin muffin recipe today!  Maybe you will have some left over pumpkin (not not) but these muffins are a healthy hearty snack that you can freeze ahead and use for lunches throughout the week!

Just a reminder that we are closed on Thanksgiving Monday and reopened Tuesday morning!
