ELK POINT - Elk Point physician Dr. Drew Ramful has had numerous calls from worried patients after they heard of his impending retirement on Dec. 31, and after giving the matter considerable thought, he has decided to stay on until a new doctor is in place, but on a reduced schedule.

“We won’t have a new doctor on Jan. 1,” Dr. Ramful told the Elk Point Review on Monday morning, adding that a replacement physician “will probably be here in April or May.”

In the meantime, he said, “I have agreed to continue my usual office hours in my clinic on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and will do virtual visits via video conference for the rest of the week.”
