Couple will miss retiring physician

Dr. Hancock has been our family doctor for 17 years and we have been informed that he is closing his practice at the end of May. During those years he has correctly diagnosed our medical problems and referred us to the appropriate specialists, all of whom have been friendly, professional and highly regarded in their fields.

Dr. Hancock is a professional of the highest order, warm and fuzzy when needed and forceful when necessary. He has always taken the time to listen to our problems and explained any medical terms in English. His office staff have always been professional, usually being able to get us an appointment within a few days, and on numerous occasions he has apologized to us when he has kept us waiting for more than 10 minutes… an unusual doctor, indeed. His retirement will leave a void in our local health care.

Doctor, thank you for your care, we will miss you.
