Where do Hey Clinic Guests Come From? Filling in the "Hole" for Arkansas!

Over the past 4 and a half years at Hey Clinic, we have had the privilege of caring for guests from all over, 70% of which travel from beyond the Triangle area where we work and live here in North Carolina. Recently Emily in my office updated our website, including our USA Map which shows where people have traveled from to be cared for at Hey Clinic (

Emily showed us the new web site this morning at our weekly Hey Clinic “Learning, Quality and Care Conference”, and was concerned that we had a “hole” in the middle of our USA map for Arkansas --- the only State in the middle and eastern USA where we have NOT had a guest!
So, if you are in Arkansas, and have scoliosis or kyphosis, we wanted to offer you a special welcome to Hey Clinic. We are only 18 minutes from RDU airport, and would be happy to get you a ride to and from the airport, so you can help fill in the “hole” in our map, while we also offer you service which is worth the trip!
I think we may start a new Hey Clinic tradition: have a special luncheon celebration at Hey Clinic whenever we have a guest from a new State or country. Of course we would offer up our traditional North Carolina Barbeque (or healthier salad if you prefer!) for you with our staff.

There are several other holes on the map further east as you can see, although Hawaii, as our furthest west State is covered.
Last month, we took care of JohnPaul and his family from the Philippines which is even further west! Alaska and Rhode Island I think is also still open.

Whether you are from Arkansas, or Alaska, or right next door here in Raleigh, NC, our whole team works very hard to serve all of our precious guests and their families with great care in the same way we would hope to be treated.

Many thanks to Emily who is doing a great job updating our website. We look forward to see how your creativity will be put to great use!!
