To the editor:
This letter was right to the point. It seems that Memorial Health
System has a hidden motive for removing Dr. Kottemann. They seem to
have technology taking priority over health care from an extremely
knowledgeable doctor that has been in our community for many, many
The integrity of Memorial Health System has lost much respect due
to the hideous and blatant action to remove Dr. Steven Kottemann, a
fine member of the medical staff. He is well-respected, conservative
in treatment, very understanding, and ultimately -- always willing
to listen and treat.

Sad day for Logan County if he is on permanent leave. Our best to
Dr. K, as we have called him for 30-plus years, and heartfelt
gratitude for years of untiring dedication to the medical community
you chose to serve.
