My husband and I would like to thank Dr. Tommy Joseph for his many years of selfless service to the children of Kershaw County. We both saw Dr. Joseph as children and then took our own two sons to him for the past 14 years. He was a gift to our family and the community. He calmed our many "new parent" fears and reassured us while providing the best medical treatment available. He is one of a kind and we will miss seeing him at the doctor's office. Congratulations on your well-deserved retirement!
