Tribute to doctor

This is a respectful tribute to Dr. William Bridger, who retired and caused much sorrow to his vast number of grateful patients.

With high professional skill, outstanding ethics and close empathy, he provided top quality attention to his patients. He exemplified, with elegant dignity, the true spirit of how a sincere doctor should carry out his required obligations.

Particularly, he was thoughtful of the elderly and avoided making them wait, wait, wait. He understood the physical limitation imposed by their frailty.

With much concern, he took care of each patient – no “mass production, assembly line” service. His high professional standards were even reflected in the type of reading materials he had in his waiting room. They revealed the professional elegance of his fine character. Thus, with much sincere gratitude is this tribute of respect to Dr. William Bridger.
