Gold Skin Care Center has grown very aggressively. Your thoughts?
We started the dermatology clinic in 1990 and the spa in 1991. We had two employees when we started, and we now have 55. We have grown to four divisions: Gold Skin Care Center (the umbrella entity); a full-service medical oriented spa called Advanced Aesthetics (facials, nails, cellulite, etc.); the Tennessee Clinical Research Center; and the Laser and Rejuvenation Center, which offers about 25 medical lasers and devices.
Please discuss the laser center.
