Le Mars Says Good Bye To Dr. Duncan
(Le Mars) -- Hundreds of people turned out at the Floyd valley Hospital late Tuesday afternoon to say good bye to a community doctor that has been providing health care to Le Mars residents for 29 years. Dr. Tom Duncan is leaving his practice and the town of Le Mars. Dr. Duncan says he was overwhelmed by the turnout at yesterday's event.
Duncan says he and his wife are leaving Le Mars to be closer to their daughters and grandchildren.
Duncan says he has some fond memories of his practice and of the town of Le Mars. He says when he started as a doctor nearly 30 years ago, he hadn't even heard of the town.
The family physician says during his tenure, he delivered nearly 1000 babies. He was pleased to be a part of the expansion of the hospital into the Family Practice Clinic, as well as to see the hospital expand its market into Remsen and Marcus. He says Le Mars provided an excellent community atmosphere for his family.
While many people took the opportunity to say good bye to Dr. Duncan, Floyd Valley Hospital introduced its newest doctor, Dr. Andrew Geha to the community.
