I would tend to think partly as a result of the "holiday factor". Two weeks ago, people were running around, seeing docs etc so that their affairs were in order for the holiday season, travel etc. After that, a short lull until new year?
I think you are right Kole. Everyone went to doctors well before now to get out of the way for Christmas and New Years. Will pick up again in January. Still happy with numbers for now especially in light of the news today. This is good news!!!
