The MMA Wishes Happy Holidays for All

As physicians you have generously dedicated your lives to helping others knowing that long hours and time away from their families is a given. It takes a special kind of person to dedicate themselves to a medical career. And while not many patients take the time to thank you over the holidays, send cards, or write notes the impact your care has on their lives and the lives of their loved ones is immeasurable.

 

As physicians you have generously dedicated your lives to helping others knowing that long hours and time away from their families is a given. It takes a special kind of person to dedicate themselves to a medical career. And while not many patients take the time to thank you over the holidays, send cards, or write notes the impact your care has on their lives and the lives of their loved ones is immeasurable. We apologize if we haven’t recently thanked you directly, or as a group. Rest assured we are proud to work on your behalf representing the Maine Medial Association and each of us are very much looking forward to doing all we can for you in 2021. 

Happy Holidays to each of you, your families, and your staff.
