    It is October!

    It is October!

    It is officially fall time in the Tri-Cities! Break out your leggings, over sized sweat shirts and Uggs! It is a favorite season of some here in the office, even if it does mean that we will be entering Winter before we know it 🙁

    Here at Greater Binghamton OB/GYN we have a big change coming in October. As many of you already know because you follow us on Facebook, our very own Laura Jacobs FNP will be leaving our office and starting a very exciting journey to Tennessee with her family. We all wish her the best and will miss her greatly!

    We will be happy to schedule anyone who was seeing Laura with our nurse practitioner Nicole Rouhana or with Dr. Leuci!
    We will be calling all patients on her schedule to reschedule their appointments, however if you know you have an upcoming appointment with Laura you can always call us and reschedule any time! We will be happy to make sure we can get you in for your appointment when it works for you.

    We are always hunting down new recipes to try especially once the weather starts to get chilly. Here is one that Shazery found that she thought sounded easy and delicious!
