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!
