Proceed With Caution
Just how windy was it ? Apparently windy enough one recent day to knock this sign on the llolden
Beach Bridge out of whack. The arrow normally points up, but this alignment suggested a more ad
venturous approach to motorists crossing to the island.

Over the last 4-1/2 years I have had the pleasure of
serving this community as a physician. I brought with me a
desire to practice the highest standard of medicine, as a
loving and caring human being who was also trained in the
specialty of Family Practice.
My philosophy of medicine holds the doctor to be an
educator-the true definition of the word doctor. I have
attempted in that role of educator to practice preventive
medicine, as well as therapeutic intervention. I have an
abiding belief in the biblical phrase that tells us it is better
to teach a man to fish than to give him a fish.
1 have attempted to demonstrate my belief in good health
maintenance by practicing that which I preach. There have
been occasions in which my alliances have been in discord
with this philosophy; projects started that will not be
completed. Yes, there are some regrets.
For the most part, it has been extremely gratifying to
experience the warm acceptance of what appeared to be in
this area at least, a non-traditional medical practice. In the
end, it is clear that we all share the same goals of an
improved quality of life.
It now becomes necessary for me to move the basis of my
practice, and my office in Village Pines will be closing
effective July 1, 1992. For the honored patients in my
practice who wish to continue with me, I welcome the
opportunity to discuss these plans further. Please contact
my office or my home at your convenience. For those
individuals with whom my association in a patient-doctor
relationship shall end, I thank you for the pleasure of that
acquaintance. With my most sincere regards...
