Meet the A. Little Staff
Larry is not only Dr. Little’s husband but our practice manager. Even though you don’t see him in the office all that often he is a key player in our daily business activities. We would be lost without him. He loves golfing, playing cards and spending time with his two daughters Christie & Claudia. He contributes a huge amount of business knowledge to the clinic as well as a sense of humor that no one can match! We all truly appreciate all that Larry does to keep everyone running smoothly. He helped in building the practice from the bottom up. Not to mention all of the hard work he has done with many of our renovations!
