Dec. 9, 2009: Dr. J is important community asset


To The Editor:
It has come to my attention that Margaretville Hospital and our community may be on the verge of losing a very important asset, Dr. J. Ravinnaurath. I cannot overstate the contribution or commitment Dr. J and his family have made to our community and the well-being of its residents. They have made this area their home for over six years and have offered their talents not only to MMH but also to our school.
I am begging Margaretville Hospital and Kingston Regional Hospital to do whatever they can to keep Dr. J. here.
I do not want to see a new doctor every few months; I would like to have a long-term relationship with my doctor. If Dr. J is not available, I will be forced to transfer my care and that of my entire family to Bassett Health Care.
