South Valley Internal Medicine was nominated for their quick response to the pandemic by being the first facility in the area to provide Covid vaccinations. Dr Lovy was even interviewed on Good Morning America about his work during the pandemic. Their office was the first approved site in our area to carry monoclonal antibody therapy for covid patients. His staff have worked to care for so many with heart and soul for over two years and they are appreciated.
Mister Nicks was nominated for all of the behind the scenes giving to groups and community projects in need. Through staff shortages and hardships owner Rob always was kind and smiling even if he was waiting tables or cooking in the kitchen. He also was so kind to the Rotary Club who he was able to allow meet in the basement until they could meet back at the Westfield and the Rotary is so grateful for that.
It was actually because of what these businesses did during the pandemic this year that the TBA chose 2 businesses for 2022. Congratulations to the 2022 Businesses of the Year, Kevin James Menswear and owner Jessica Bazner and South Valley Internal Medicine, Dr Jonathan Lovy and his medical team.
