Kershaw County's well-loved pediatrician retires
young Tommy Joseph
Pediatrician Dr. Tommy Joseph, pictured earlier in his career, joined Dr. Curtis Watkins, opening their doors on Jan. 1, 1976. He would later partner with Dr. Ted Kalutz in 1979 to form Pediatric Associates. Joseph said he doesn't know how many children he's seen. "It's in the thousands."
There’s a good chance a majority of at least two, if not three, generations of Kershaw County residents have passed through Dr. Tommy Joseph’s office doors during the past 35-plus years. If you’re in the minority, don’t worry, you probably know someone who has. Joseph retired Friday on what, a few days earlier, he said would be a normal work day.
