Letter – Explanation about doctor needed from people in charge

Letter to the editor from the May 14, 2014 Grand Forks Gazette.

We would be losing one of the most competent, caring doctors we have in our area, if Dr. Ajaero leaves. He is held in very high regard by all his patients and is considered by many a friend.

Traveling through three communities, bringing us the care that we so desperately need in an area so often left without. He takes the time to listen to you, not rushing your time and as everyone can agree, with a handshake and a sincere smile on his face.

With Dr. Ajaero we have a good man, who is an important part of our community and we all hoped he would have stayed for many years to come. We’d be very sorry to see him go.

We agree with the families who have voiced their opinions in previous letters—we need an explanation from the people in charge. Maybe if more of us let them know how we feel it might not be too late.

Joni and Stan Elzinga,

Gordon Robertson,

Christian Valley
