in Modesto, CA - this page was written around 2012 but much of it is still
relevant. I updated our address in Modesto!
I was sitting in our living room with Dr. Tammy Wu's brothers who live in Los Angeles, California. They thought Modesto was a nice place to visit and live because we have access to nice stores and services without the tremendous traffic. They love the fact that there is the convenience of having a Trader Joes, Costco, and an Apple Store. These things were important to them as visitors.
This led me to do a search on Wikipedia on how many Apple stores there were in the world. There are 363 stores in the world as of June 2012.
Somehow this led me to do a search on how many women plastic surgeons there were in the United States
Source: May 2012 Plastic Surgery News
So, I had to add that Modesto has a woman plastic surgeon (1 of 668 women Plastic Surgeons in the US as of May 2012).
Apple Store (1 of 363 in the world)
A Woman Plastic Surgeon (1 of 668 in the US), Dr. Tammy Wu.

SAMM (Surgical Artistry Modesto Marathon which is Boston Qualifying)
We are just 2 hours away from everything, centrally located, "Modesto is on your way to everywhere" (Sunset Magazine)
Cost of living is reasonable in comparison
Because it's close enough to San Francisco and the weather is beautiful
Farmer's markets, flower farms, almond orchards
Gallo Center for the Arts
A new theater - Center Stage Conservatory Lower Level Studio
Birthplace of many nice folks
At least we're not Stockton (not sure entirely what this means - I haven't spent much time in Stockton)
Doesn't hold a candle to San Diego - no beaches, padres, chargers, sea world, zoo, balboa park.
Modesto can be seen as the armpit of Modesto
I had to reply to my San Diego friend (who made the previous three points) that "I had turned down a job offer in San Diego to take my first surgery job in Modesto, CA." Interestingly that's where I met this San Diego friend - at my first job in Modesto. She had moved away to San Diego. I guess I've been known to make "strange" decisions (such as San Diego vs. Modesto). But we do like it here in Modesto. After the first surgery job went away in 2006. We continued on in Modesto as a choice to stay in Modesto. We feel that Modesto is a great place to be a doctor.
