“The more things change, the more they remain the same”. Although we now operate in a cutting-edge facility, with triple the amount of employees and a multi-million dollar budget, many of the most important aspects our daily operations remain the same. We consistently uphold the highest standard of care and we treat every patient with utmost dignity, respect, and compassion. I have had the unparalleled opportunity to work with some of the most skilled professionals in their field for the past 16 years that I have been part of the Gateway Family. Most dear to me is that I am allowed to share a small portion of my knowledge, skill, grace and self with those who most need it and in return I receive the greatest gift of all, tears (of joy), words of kindness, and long lasting patient-client relationships. I am blessed beyond belief… and still living it!Davyne Agüero, RDH
