Grand Opening! Just For You Women’s Healthcare in Locust Grove
On January 21, 2011, Dr. Lorie Johnson, President of Just For You Women’s Healthcare, celebrated the Grand Opening of her new medical practice location, conveniently located at 3976 Highway 42S, just five minutes off the I-75 Locust Grove exit.
The Grand Opening Celebration started promptly at 4:30 pm with Dr. Johnson welcoming her guests to her new location. She had the support of her friendly and caring office staff to help her commemorate this very special day. Even her very beautiful seventeen-year-old daughter, Miss Briana Johnson, a senior at Locust Grove High School came out on a Friday evening to enjoy the festivities.
As we made our way into the lobby of Dr. Johnson’s new location, the pleasant aroma of fresh-cut roses filled the air with a healing scent that made you want to take a closer look at the amazingly beautiful flower arrangements. Equally pleasing to the eye was the presentation of refreshments, which were available for the guests to enjoy.
Mr. Louis Person, Administrator for the medical practice, greeted us with a huge and welcoming smile and thanked us for coming out to the Grand Opening. He quickly took a big handful of our People You Need to Know Magazines that we brought with us to the event and placed them prominently all over their waiting room. And … as soon as he placed them down, the guests started picking them up, admiring how beautiful Dr. Lorie Johnson looked on the front cover.
Mr. Person gave us the grand tour of their new facility which seemed to grow with each and every step we took. As we made our rounds, the guests were so cordial, it made us feel as if we were in the right place on a Friday night in metro Atlanta. One of the first people we met was Tamara Ison, CFO of Spaulding Regional Medical Center located in Griffin, Georgia. We wouldn’t be surprised if Ms. Ison graced the front cover of our next publication. She was at the Grand Opening along with her CEO John Quinn, a gentleman who had an easy smile on his face and a firm and welcoming handshake. They were also joined by their Chief Nursing Officer, Ms. Wadra McCullough and the Spaulding Regional Medical Center COO, Chris Locke.
We were happy to finally meet Sonya Harver, receptionist at Just For You Women’s Healthcare. She is always so personable over the phone and it was delight to meet her face-to-face. Brooke Harper, Dr. Johnson’s Medical Assistant was a joy to meet as well. The Triage Nurse and Surgery Scheduler for Dr. Johnson, Ms. Grenda Gay, was also in attendance. Grenda says the best thing about working in the Just For You office is the great group of people. She told us that she has a passion for Ob/Gyn and helping the community with health and wellness.
Lena Livingston, owner of Genesis Herb Shop and one of Dr. Johnson’s new neighbors stopped by to welcome and support Dr. Lorie Johnson, who was voted in 2010 as one of the Top Ob/Gyns in America by the Consumers’ Research Council. We really enjoyed learning more about the services offered by Ms. Livingston’s Herb Shop. She said they offer Kinesiology testing and also have a Bio-Feedback Indigo Machine, which scans over 10,000 frequencies in the body, each associated with a different compound. Lena says the cost for this service is only $50.00.
We got a chance to speak with Breanne Roberston, she’s in her 3rd year of the doctorate program at the Georgia School of Professional Psychology. Breanne, you’re going to the top!
Real Estate Agent Tracey Denson (firstname.lastname@example.org) with Atlanta Dream Realty was kind enough to pose for a few pictures.Tracey has been in Real Estate for the past four and a half years and she specializes in residential and commercial properties. She’s also a supervisor with the American Red Cross and has been working with them for the last 15 years.
Shirelle Williams, owner of Solemate Boutique stopped by to lend her support. Her ladies’ shoe store and accessories business has been open in Locust Grove for four years.
Everyone was at ease with Atlanta’s newest all-star photographer, Mr. Gabriel Maupin. Gabe is a true pro who knows how to blend in without getting in the way. The next time you see Gabe, ask him to give you one of his award-winning business cards. You will be impressed!
Before we made our exit, we met two wonderful ladies from the majestic island of Jamaica. Ms. Lynn Wright, owner of Wright’s Fashion in Locust Grove, told us that she is a native of Clarendon, Jamaica. Her store has been open and serving the community for three and a half years. And her fellow Jamaican native, Ms. Erica Jones (email@example.com) is a Special Projects Coordinator with AFLAC. She wanted us to know that AFLAC Insurance offers the much needed service of paying you when you get sick or hurt. This is great insurance for business owners.
I’m sure that everyone who attended this Grand Opening event enjoyed themselves immensely.
Just For You, Ob/Gyn medical practice is sure to be a big hit in Locust Grove. At People You Need to Know Magazine, we wish Dr. Lorie Johnson and her hardworking staff much success in serving the needs of women in the Locust Grove, Henry County and surrounding metro Atlanta area.
