To the editor:
Twenty years ago I moved to Lincoln with my
then-infant daughter. We were assigned to be Dr. Kottemann's
Over the years Dr. Kottemann has cared for myself and two
daughters with care that was second to none. There were times I had
to wait in the exam room to see him, but all I could think is I knew
he was caring for another patient as he does me. I wouldn't want him
to rush through someone else's time just to get to me. He was worth
waiting for. He listened, addressed all questions, calmed fears as
much as possible and gave excellent medical attention.
Now, 20 years later, my then-infant daughter is expecting her
first child and was looking forward to having Dr. Kottemann care for
her as he has for her.
[to top of second
column in this letter]
Dr. Kottemann, I want you to know that your patients are behind
you. Dr. Kasa, I don't know why you put Dr. Kottemann on
administrative leave, but I do know I want my doctor back.
