My name is Safiyya and I’m relatively new to the CSM Family. I’ve been brought on as Dr. A’s personal assistant, which usually means I’m either tucked away in my little nook or zipping behind Dr. Armogan, trying to steal a moment from his crazy schedule.
Although I’m new to the CSM Family, I was a patient of Dr. A’s since I was 9 years old. That’s almost 20 years ago! I can recall those humiliating photos and the gruelling impressions like it was yesterday! Whew…I suddenly feel really old! I also recall feeling slightly depressed once my braces were removed…I felt like I was saying goodbye to my family…no more visits to the office…no more of CSM’s friendly faces and Dr. A’s cheesy jokes. I can honestly say I never really felt like a patient here…I’ve always felt like part of the family… and guess what! I’m back!!!!
