Slide Show of East Side Clinic From Start to Finish

Recently I had a chance to visit our newest facility, the Bowden Eye Care & Health Center, on the East side of San Antonio and was able to take some photos.  Check out the slide show chronicling the start of the process all the way to the completion.  There is still a little ways to go, but the health center should be seeing patients as early as the end of May.

Enjoy!
