The Right Place . . . The Right Time
Celebrity patient Dolly Parton with Dr. Ming Wang
Who is Dr. Ming Wang? That is probably your precise question at this very moment! Krista Martinelli, administrator, founder, and editor for AroundWellington.com was my “date” for the night. It was a fateful Saturday night, and I was honored to have been invited to see the annual Royal Palm DanceSport Championships NQE and WDSF Open Palm Chapter #6016 which was organized by Krista’s father, Dave Koontz and her Stepmom (also president of the Board), Connie Barnhart. When we looked at our tickets and found our table, we saw a distinguished-looking man and his family sitting in what we though were “our seats”. And, we told him, very boldly, “we think you might be at the wrong table”. The man smiled at us, moved over gently, and we felt ridiculous as we had just put our “foot in our mouths”. This “stranger”, unbeknownst to us, was one of the dancers. He had a number tag on his back and was sitting with members of his family. After this awkward and “accidental” encounter, the situation improved. Krista and I discovered that this man was not just a brilliant ballroom dancer and an interesting conversationalist, but also a prominent laser eye surgeon.
