The cold temperatures froze one of our furnaces at our Kettering clinic which caused all our pipes to freeze! Huge thanks to Korrect Plumbing Heating and Air Conditioning for coming out almost immediately to help! We won't have water all day, unfortunately. We will finish seeing our morning appointments but will be moving our afternoon appointments to our Springboro location for anyone who is willing and able to make the switch. We will also be closed from 12-2 for our quarterly team training at both clinics. So sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Take care and stay warm! ... See MoreSee Less
