Thanks to all our patients who made it to for our Patient Appreciation Party last Friday at our office in Lemont! In case you missed it, here’s a quick recap of the events of the day:

10 a.m.:  Dr. Kim begins brewing a special holiday drink of warm, mulled apple cider.

11 a.m.:  The DM Foot & Ankle team begins setting up decorations, food and drinks -- including the cider.

Noon:  One of our medical assistants, Jennifer, sets out her homemade goodies of salted-caramel brownies and leche flan. The rest of the staff immediately begins drooling.

1 p.m.:  Patients begin to arrive and start noshing on Portillo’s Italian beef, salad and mostaccioli.  Catered wraps, cupcakes, and veggies and dip complete the meal.

1:15 pm:  Raffle time!  The first raffle is drawn and prizes are given to patients.  Raffles are drawn every 15 to 20 minutes and various gifts are distributed.

2 p.m.:  The place is a full house!  The staff, Dr. Emini and Dr. Kim talk and mingle with everyone.  Medical assistant Joel becomes a paparozzo – taking digital photos of all the action.

3 p.m.:  Time for the grand finale! Our office manager, Kristy; medical assistant Lisa, front desk staffer Richelle and marketer Erinn take turns drawing winners for our referral contest (patients who referrered friends or family from September to November got their names in the raffle.)  Congratulations to Camille G., the winner of a brand new iPad mini!

4 p.m.:  Party cleanup is done, and the staff begins dancing around the office.

We hope everyone who came had a merry time.  We truly enjoy and appreciate our patients!

Think back five years ago to 2008 – Barack Obama was elected president, Danica Patrick became the first woman to win an Indy car race and moviegoers rushed to see the first "Twilight" movie with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart on the big screen.

For Lemont Podiatrists Dr. Michelle Kim and Dr. Diana Emini October 2008 marked a big event for these ladies as well: DM Foot and Ankle Associates opened for business.


During the past five years we've always tried looking for ways to grow and show our appreciation to our patients. On September 1, we started offering a special promotion to our patients -- and one person will take home a brand-new iPad mini as a result!

Guidelines: DM Foot and Ankle patients who refer a new patient to the practice will have their name entered into a raffle. There will be one ticket entered for each new person referred. Those who refer several patients have multiple chances to win!
