Letters to the Editor

Doctor in fraud case a good man

This letter is not in response to the charges against Dr. Jim Vest but about the man himself.

I have known and been a patient of Dr. Vest for more than 25 years. I know him to be a man of integrity, both considerate and conscientious. Most of us receive test results from a yearly physical in the mail with instructions. Dr. Vest has personally called me to explain diagnosis and answer any questions concerning test results. I have bumped into him a few times at restaurants, etc. And he has always asked about whatever it is I may be physically dealing with at the time. This is not small talk. He listens and often says “just pop in tomorrow.”

Dr. Vest is knowledgeable and down to earth. And I have referred many to him. Primary Care is a clean and well staffed office. He is an asset to Surfside Beach and Myrtle Beach as a whole. I like him.

The writer lives in Myrtle Beach.
