I have had many, many concerned calls from upset patients these past two days, wondering if Dr. Martin was retiring. I was absolutely baffled, until someone pointed out that it was hinted at in your newspaper.
I do wish someone would have contacted our office before printing this article, causing our patients undue stress and worry. Your article would not have been lacking for content without the sentence, “Jerry Martin, M.D., practices at the Rappahannock Medical Center in Washington, though many speculate he is nearing retirement” Please take note that Dr. Martin has no imminent plans to retire. Please consider the effect of what you put in print.
