September 10, 2013Today, I had one of those days that made me so happy to live here in Valley Center. At 11:15 this morning, my three-year-old came to me and told me his ear was hurting. He is my third child so I knew this meant a possible ear infection. I picked up the phone and called Dr. Craychee's office. They answered immediately and told me to come right in. I waited barely five minutes before seeing the doctor. He looked my son over and diagnosed an ear infection. I was on my way to Community Pharmacy by 11:40. I walked into the pharmacy, handed over the prescription, entertained my son by showing him some funny greeting cards for a few minutes and then Dr. Wisecarver told me the medicine was ready. By noon (45 minutes from the moment my son said his ear was hurting), I was back home giving my son his medication. In any other place, a kid with an ear infection would have turned into an all-day affair. I love this town! Thank you to Dr. Craychee, Community Pharmacy and Valley Center!
