Well, this is going to shock some of you! Many of you have been told, and we have held off with the full scale announcement until we made sure that those who have been around a long time would get an opportunity to hear this news directly from he or I.
Dr. Levi is leaving. And because it has taken us so long to get it out to everyone, it is happening this week. Yep. Please get yourselves into the office this week to say good bye to Dr. Levi. Now, it is possible that you will see him around, somewhere, in the future. He isn’t “leaving” in the sense of moving away. He is leaving in the sense of blazing his own path. I have to say, I am proud to see this day. Proud of him to take this leap.
Dr. Levi is not heading out to start his own practice, but he is stepping out to start his own CrossFit Gym. Yep! CrossFit Allatoona is opening soon, and it is under the sole ownership of Dr. Levi and his wife. Levi joined me about 11 years ago, roughly a year after I was in practice. He is a loyal guy, which I appreciate immensely, but he came to me from a successful background in personal training. It was his thing, he was really good at that. Then he added chiropractic to his repertoire of things to be good at, but underneath, he always had a comfort with fitness education that you couldn’t deny.
When he got into CrossFit, I pictured him having a more permanent home in a gym one day. He is great at dissecting anything. The medical model, leptin, chiropractic, crossfit… this gift makes him an awesome coach, and a great leader in fitness.
I cannot say enough about how great it has been to have Dr. Levi in the office. It will be a huge difference going forward. Especially given that Dr. Samara will be leaving for her career change to Australia shortly. But we’ll be ok… so let me fill you in on what will be happening at HealthSprout.
Intern Nate (very close to being Dr. Nate) and his soon to be wife Dr. Rebecca (intern from two quarters ago) will be working with us shortly. They however, are in a program with Maximized Living, where they will be moving at the end of the year. They are more of a stop gap, to keep things rolling.
The long term plan, is that I have my brother coming. He is about to graduate from a chiropractic school in Buffalo. He’ll be down here with me early in the new year. And will be back and forth to Buffalo until the school year ends and his kids get out of school. Not sure how much we will see him, but we’ll have fresh interns as well, and all will be good. By next July, we’ll have a stable plan going forward.
Don’t worry about HealthSprout, we’ll be all sorts of focused and good! Right now, the focus is on making sure we give Dr. Levi the farewell that he deserves! So please, take the time to be sure you get into the office to give him a big hug!
Be well and Be Blessed! (you too Dr. Levi!) – Dr. E
