Spotlight on Small Business

We believe small businesses are crucial to a community. Both Dr. Kokabi and Dr. Joon grew up in small business families. Dr. Kokabi spent his teenage years working at his father's clothing store on Buford Highway. Dr. Joon is still involved with his parents’ dry cleaning business in Augusta. This was the inspiration for our Spotlight on Small Business initiative. Through this complementary program we seek to bring attention to our patients who own small businesses and do our best to help promote them. Please let us know if you own a small business or offer a service and would like to be featured in this program at no charge.

The Chattahoochee Riverkeeper is a nonprofit organization solely dedicated to restoring and protecting the Chattahoochee River, its lakes, and tributaries. Established in 1994, the organization keeps watch over our water with programs like water monitoring, education, research, advocacy, communication, collaboration, and legal action. Your donation will help ensure that the people and wildlife who depend on the Chattahoochee River will have enough clean water for now and for future generations. A special thanks to Kyndall T. and our long time friend Rebecca Klein for helping make this happen.
Also, here is a fun little fact for our friends that live in the neighborhoods of West Nancy Creek, Murphey Candler, and East Nancy Creek. Did you know that Nancy Creek ultimately empties into the Chattahoochee River? Nancy Creek starts near Chamblee and winds 16 miles through Brookhaven, Sandy Springs, and Buckhead. It then merges with Peachtree Creek and finally empties into the Chattahoochee River.
