    Dana's Corner: GUNG-HO!! INSIDE OUTSIDE Medical Spa .. My Vision


    GUNG-HO! Extremely enthusiastic and dedicated. [Earlier Gung Ho, motto of certain U.S. Marine forces in Asia during World War II, from Chinese (Mandarin) gōnghé, to work together (short for gōngyèhézuòshè, Chinese Industrial Cooperative Society) : gōng, work + , together.]

    When I met Dr. C many years ago, I remember thinking, ‘WOW, this Dr. is as GUNG-HO about the ZONE, and helping others as I am! Dr. C is to San Antonio what Ken Cooper is to Dallas!  Way ahead of his time, Willing to change, and be changed, and Willing to do whatever he needs to do to get the good message/education out to the masses!   Click for larger image.
