Celebrating National Doctors’ Day

Published 11:03am Friday, March 30, 2012

Today is National Doctors’ Day, an annual celebration in honor of the physicians who care for us. In our area we are blessed to have so many fine doctors with an abundance of expertise, compassion and dedication along with the facilities and resources to provide excellent care.
I have yet to hear someone complain about the quality of care in our area, and as anyone who has lived in a small town will tell you – that’s not the usual and probably, is down right unheard of.
From dog bites to heart attacks residents receive top quality professional care. A week doesn’t go by that I don’t hear from someone who expresses how thankful they are that we have St. Luke’s Hospital right here in Tryon, centrally located in the heart of our area and what great treatment they received from their doctor.
Day in and day out at every hour of the day and night, regardless of holidays, physicians service our needs. We have a lot to be thankful for in our area and our doctors rank right up there near the top.
And so on this, the National Doctor’s Day, I would like to say thank you to all of our doctors for your service, dedication, and your compassionate care. Thank you for being there when we need you.
