I will be in the office from time to time to perform necessary work and conduct
personal consultations by telephone or face-to-face meetings, whichever you prefer,
and I periodically check my phone messages and email.

If you call and get my voice mail, please leave a message, and I will get back to
you as soon as I can.  Thank you.
