Tributes pour in for re­tir­ing doc­tors

Southern Telegraph - - OPINION -

Our Fe­bru­ary 27 front- page photo and story of re­tired gen­eral prac­ti­tioner ob­ste­tri­cians Dr Essa Ra­sool, Dr Ross Jose and Dr Ed­ward Bou­verie re­ceived an over­whelm­ing re­sponse on the Sound’s Face­book page.

Scores of moth­ers whose chil­dren were de­liv­ered by one, or more, of the three, and even some of the now grown de­liv­er­ies, took to the com­ments sec­tion to ex­press their grat­i­tude.

“These doc­tors are ir­re­place­able and will be greatly missed in ob­stet­rics in our area not just for their skill but their gen­uine care,” Wendy Goffage wrote. Tab John­son added: “Dr Jose and Dr Bou­vierre saved both of my chil­dren’s lives. I wish them all the hap­pi­ness in the world. Much love.”

“Dr Jose, you were the best! You de­liv­ered my daugh­ter 24 years ago and then my grand­son 4 years ago. You were an awe­some doc­tor! Happy Re­tire­ment,” Shell Belle wrote.

Blythe Carter added: “Dr Jose was my doc­tor for my 1st son, but Dr Bou­verie was there when I de­liv­ered and we ex­pe­ri­enced watch­ing my baby take his first breath to­gether. I was so lucky to have these doc­tors, they will be sorely missed in the pro­fes­sion.” “Dr Ra­sool was a plea­sure to have you help me de­liver my first baby and your lovely daugh­ter was there for my sec­ond baby, ” Ann Balaam wrote. “Thanks for look­ing af­ter me many moons ago as a child. Happy re­tire­ment,” Jor­dan Lewis wrote.
