Thankful for the quality care provided by Dr. Kottemann

To the editor:

I have been a patient of Dr. Steven Kottemann since 1980. I have often waited in the waiting room of the medical center well past my appointed time. But I always received all of his time and attention when my turn came. He is the doctor I want and the doctor I choose for this very reason.

Asking him to be less than he is, is wrong on all levels. Shame on you, Family Medical Center, for your lack of respect for a wonderful and caring man.

[to top of second column in this letter]

Can't someone come up with a way to wire the exam rooms to channel sound to an adjoining room to be dictated by someone to reserve patientsí privacy? How about helping this doctor continue doctoring?

Lastly I would like to thank Dr. Kottemann for all he has done for me and my family. I really feel my life and health has been better because of him. And I'm so sorry that you have been treated so badly.
