Dear Dennis,

I wanted to thank you for your time to come and speak at the Institute’s Spring Speaker Series. You should know that so many of the people attending had thanked me for the program and for your presence. You touched so many people.

You’ve earned a reputation as a thoughtful and effective physician. My guess is you would have had a similar reputation in any other field you might have gone into. You came to the Upper Valley just a few years before me, and I’ve observed your style for some time. Based on what I’ve seen, this is how it breaks down for me: It starts with genuinely being interested in the person in front of you; being able to communicate with that person through listening, duplicating their viewpoints, and acknowledging them without judging. In finding some element you can admire in each individual, and then helping them achieve what they want, in whatever way they can accept it. I think that’s how you created the strong, lasting relationships that were your hallmark. It seems to me that is also the way you lived your life. You were married to the original gal for 45 years…and happily married. In this time of “evidence-based practice,” there’s the evidence.

I think society has been struggling here a bit Dennis. Technology can be a nice tool, as long as we don’t let it confuse us or interfere with our ability to build relationships with our patients. Thank you for everything Dennis. You really made a difference. I will remember you as I continue to apply what I’ve learned from you in my personal life as well as my professional life.

Appreciatively,

Billy Cioffredi

Find a Healthier You This Year

With Medically Based Personal Training

Cheryl1

We are not a health club or an exclusive fitness studio. Our primary purpose is to provide an extension of our Physical Therapy service for people wishing to go beyond activities of daily living, and make a safe transition back to a more active and invigorating lifestyle.

 
Once a pain problem is resolved, people still can be in a physical state that is distant from their previous or desired level of activity or function. It is common to have a level of apprehension in returning to previous activities, especially for those who have a complex medical condition. Our Medically Based Personal Training service is personalized and attentive, provided in a calm yet inspiring space, and supported by doctoral level staff. Whether you are looking to return to a health club, walk the golf course, or return to the solitude of running, we are here to help you achieve your goals.

NEW YEAR’S SPECIAL: Get an 8-Pack of Personal Training Sessions for Just $499*

(A savings of $61! That’s like getting one session FREE!)
* Offer valid for new personal training clients only. Expires March 13th, 2015.


Experience a day in the life at Cioffredi & Associates in this time-lapse video. We used GoPro technology to take a photo every 10 seconds over the course of our 12 hour clinical day. The images were then stitched together into this one minute and 21 second video. We had fun doing this project to show off the new clinic!


Fall is in the air, and that means it’s time for our semi-annual Speaker Series! Join us for an evening of food, fun, and educational speakers.

This event is FREE and open to the Upper Valley Community. Pre-registration is requested, as space is limited. Reserve your space by calling 603-643-7788 or email scheduling@cioffredi.com

Presented by Holly Westling, RN, MS, CNS and Amy Tuller, RD, LD, CDE

Have you ever come home from a long day at work exhausted and overwhelmed at the thought of cooking a healthy dinner? We all “know” what we should and shouldn’t be eating, but sometimes putting that into practice at the end of a long day can be challenging. In our culture it’s all to easy to reach for the quick fix food, but that quick fix CAN be nutritious, and we’re going to show you how.

This course will provide you with all the information you need to optimize you and your family’s nutritional health in very little time while sticking to a budget. We will review basic nutrition principles, provide money and time saving tips, and LOTS of delicious recipes. We’ll even show you how to put it all to action in the final class’s cooking demonstration.

Class fee $99 per person for all three classes, due at time of registration to hold your spot. Limited to 8 participants.

Class 1: “Optimizing Daily Nutritional Needs” The first class will be a thorough review of our daily nutritional needs and how we can eat to optimize our health.

Class 2: “Time & Budget Savers” The second class will focus on how we can meet those nutritional needs in a quick and money-saving way. We will review menu planning and time-saving strategies for preparing healthy, affordable meals that everyone in the family enjoys.

Class 3: “Putting it in Action” The final class will be a cooking demonstration where participants will learn how to cook (and sample!) these delicious, fast and affordable meals.


Please note that we will not be holding any group fitness classes from Friday 6/27 thru Monday 7/7. Our trainer is on vacation this week. We apologize for any inconvenience and look forward to seeing you when classes resume on Tuesday 7/8.
