Doctor coverage protested

This letter with an attached petition signed by 31 people is being sent to Christine Gerding at Mercy Regional Medical Center.

Dear Ms. Gerding,

The residents of Bayfield and surrounding area are very upset and appalled to learn Dr. Keller will no longer be serving our communities. We have come to know and love Dr. Keller for his clinical skills as well as his caring personality. We believe it is unconscionable for an organization such as Mercy to leave us with one part-time doctor to care for our ongoing needs. The greater Bayfield area is certainly large enough to warrant two full-time doctors. Please do not cast us by the wayside - our need is great!
