Evolve Performance Healthcare

Here is a fun commercial we shot for one of our tenants Evolve Performance Healthcare. Dr. Baird and his dog Bandit are doing some amazing things to keep Portland mobile and active. This commercial cost Dr. Baird nothing, yet we are proud that this doesn't look like "a free commercial." Creating commercials is just one of the many perks of being a North Rim Commercial Properties tenant. #TenantPerks
