Herbert Savel on being a general practitioner in Elizabethtown

Herbert Savel has been a general practitioner since he moved to Elizabethtown from Burlington in 1971. Before that, he was an oncologist, but he says general medicine keeps him on his toes. It can be unpredictable, and making lot of house calls and getting close with his patients means he can take a more holistic approach to medicine.

You can listen to his story in the audio clip.
