  1. Hi, its Lauren Howes, now that I turned 15 years old, I have to get my yearly well check up. It brings tears to my eyes knowing that your not going to be at Charlotte Pediatric Clinic, but WOW, what a beautiful place you have decided to adventure too. Can I come to Wellington and get my yearly physical?

    1. Hi Lauren, happy belated Birthday. Do not fret my friend, I will be back next year. You will be in great hands while I am gone. I just needed a year to perfect my Kiwi accent and improve my coolness. All the best to you and your family. Hugs
