What It Means To Be Your Hometown Family Doctor

Posted on August 20, 2015 at 8:43 AM
     Knowing the star football player personally.
     Having a patient say 'Thank You" for saving their life.
     Starting the day with 20 patients on the schedule and ending
     with 36 because we worked in 16 sick children.
     Taking care of your preacher, your butcher, your banker,
     and your neighbor.
     Writing for the local paper in the first few years of my practice.
     Beaming with pride as my patients go on to play college football
     across America.
     Helping deserving, hard-working students attend Space Camp.
     Sponsoring the football, baseball, cheerleading, tee ball, and
     other youth programs.
    Hiring talented team players who live in the community and
    make a difference in the community.
    Advising a young lady on a positive pregnancy test.
    Counseling  a grieving patient on the recent loss of a loved one.
    Sharing stories with patients about common themes, missed 
    opportunities, life lessons, and beloved canine companions.
      It's called being the local family doctor.
      In challenging times where doctors are selling practices and
      retiring, these are just a few of the things that make it all
      worthwhile. Thank you to my patients who allow me to do
      what I love every day.
