Hey folks!  Attached is a list of CA clinics by the date they opened. If you have the time please check if your clinic listing is correct and leave a reply if there is something wrong-like name, opening year and month.

Just to be clear, this Periodic table does not quite include all CA clinics. It does have a bunch of CA clinics that are not currently on POCA and that’s okay. basically the rules to be included are:

1. It is a CA clinic. No hybrids, sorry.
2. It filled out the Annual Survey this year. The Survey is now closed.
3. If the clinic opened in 2014 it is listed as those clinics were not asked to fill out the survey.
4. The clinic is currently open. If you had a CA clinic and it is now closed then it isn’t listed. 

The abbreviations for the clinics listed are mostly set. I have tried to keep each clinic with a different abbreviation.  I can also only use up to four letters and would rather use fewer.

Okay. I plan to keep this up for a week and then send it to Kevin Germain to lay out cause I sure couldn’t do this. When he does I will get back to you about ordering a copy or two for you and your clinic.

Hi Skip.  Not sure if it makes a difference, but we aren’t Lincoln Square CA; just Lincoln Square Acupuncture.  We refer to ourselves as LSA, but if the abbreviations are set, then LS it is…

Thanks!

Hey Skip, if you’d prefer to abbreviate us as “EN” that’s fine

Ah, ok. Then my decision is that you should abbreviate us as EN.

Ha!  Your wish is my command. From now on people will call you…


EN

 


Jeez. I tried to make that EN really big and bold and that’s all I get? Sheesh. Performance anxiety for sure.

For the full clinic name, we are Down to Earth Acupuncture (not just Down to Earth).  But for the abbreviation DTE is fine.

There are several with AA, perhaps using AdA for Ad Astra?

You are right!  Missed those. You are now AdA. 

Now does this mean you need to change your user name to Acupuncture dsomething Ann?  wink
