It was with sadness that patients learned of Dr. Gordon Roper’s decision to leave the Knowlton Medical Clinic due to a career change. It was in October 2019 that he stepped up to the plate to help fill the void left by Dr. Barakett’s passing. Dr. Roper had approximately 350 registered patients and saw many more in the minor emergency clinic. He was known as a positive and cheerful doctor who took keen interest in all his patients. He will be missed. Patients of Dr. Roper will still have access to the clinic and will gradually be taken on by the other four doctors. By comparison with other areas, we are still well-served by our medical staff.
