Dr. Jim praised

Editor:

Congratulations Dr. James Whetstone!

Ask the patients of the remarkable man known as "Dr. Jim" who eased their pain and suffering, healed their illnesses and saved their lives, and they will tell you that they already knew that Dr. James Whetstone was the "Family Physician of the Year".

It is an amazing honor to be chosen by the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians as the 2009 Family Physician of the Year. Congratulations "Dr. Jim"!

Achievement is no stranger to this caring, compassionate and dedicated doctor. He is far too humble to tell people that he was considered the "Brightest of the Bright" at Muskingum College, and that he won the "Resident of the Year" during his Riverside Methodist Hospital Residency.

To be picked as "The Best of the Best" by ones' peers is an honor that few doctors in their own lifetime ever receive. No one deserves this honor more than "Dr. Jim".

Millersport is very lucky and blessed to have "Dr. Jim" as our doctor! Charles Mesko Millersport
