Longtime patient says goodbye to physician

October 19, 2012

Dear Editor,

I came to Gallipolis in 1950 to attend the Holzer School of Nursing. I worked in this profession for 48 years. Needless to say, I came in contact and worked with many, many physicians during these years.

My present physician is Dr. Aaron Karr at the Silver Bridge Plaza with the Ohio Valley Physicians. I have been a patient of his for over six years. He is one of the most outstanding physicians that I have known. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding diagnoses and treatments. One great quality he has is that he listens to the patient. He discusses options for medications or treatments and always is pleasant to the patient. Although he is very busy, he always takes time with the patients. If ever I have a problem of any kind, he discusses it and finds a solution.

I am very sad to say that he will discontinue practice here soon to relocate to another state. What a loss to our community. It is very difficult to say goodbye to such a loyal physician and friend.
