“They’ve brought by lunch, gift cards as far as to be able to get a discount or free meal at their location which has been very welcoming,” said Clinic Administrator Jessica Bolin. “It’s kind of hard when you come into a small town and everyone is very close knit. They welcomed the team with open arms and they seem to be very happy to have this service here.”
