On June 5 our little office will have been open for 17 years. In addition, Dr Macleod has been working in the Shenandoah Valley since 1996. Wow what a journey. It seems like yesterday, Sue, and I put Highlander Family Medicine on the map. We have a great team and look forward to continuing to care for our patients. We are no longer teaching PA students for many reasons. The Medical field has changed a lot in the last few years – most of it not for the good. It is becoming more challenging to get what people need and satisfy the constant demands for bureaucratic and insurance stuff. Despite all of this, Dr Macleod has taken on a new job as a Medical Director for Gentiva Hospice. It was needed to have a local doc in that role. It takes ½ a day a week but the rest of the time we are still in Highlander doing what we always do. Thank you for the privilege of looking after our Highlander family.
