Stop the specialist merry-go-round


Last updated 8/1/2018 at 10:11am

I have lived in this area for almost 19 years, and in that time I have seen good specialists come to this area, be here for a year or two, and leave. This leaves those who need a good orthopedic or heart doctor forced to go to Spokane or even further to see someone.

I have to ask WHY. Why is it that this hospital and clinic are unable to keep these doctors? I will have to blame the hospital administrator(s) for this.

The hospital needs to do whatever they need to do in order to keep these great doctors. Pay them according to their contracts, whether that entails: more money, shorter hours, equipment they need to do their jobs, etc.

I, for one, will have to travel to Spokane, now, to have this treatment done. I am sad we are losing Dr. Cartwright, a class act, hard to follow. Please, please stop the merry-go-round. It’s not fun for anyone.
