Thanksgiving Day just passed but hopefully we wake every morning with gratefulness in our
minds and hearts. Beyond concerns for my patients’ physical health and appearance, I also
care about their inner peace and purest beauty that comes from within. I would like to
dedicate my column today to a few favorite quotes that remind me of the true meaning of
