“OPTC is family. I have worked here since 2000 and love it. It is fun to see so many returning patients who I now consider friends, family, or "fossils" as Pete fondly refers to them. I have had the pleasure of sharing in all seasons of life with my patients. What better place to get better than among "family".”
