Dr. Troop a physician who saved my life
Placeholder Image

As several of you know, Dr. Ray Troop will be retiring on April 30. He has been taking care of the people in Warren and surrounding counties for almost 50 years.
I would especially like to thank him for taking care of me and my wie, Vilas, for almost 40 years.
In 1988, he found a knot on my neck and sent me to the hospital for a thyroid scan. The technician said the scan didn’t show anything. I started out the door and she asked me who my doctor was. I said Dr. Ray Troop.
When I said Dr. Troop, she said come back because he has great hands for finding thyroid knots. I was sent to Nashville immediately and both of my thyroids were cancerous and were removed. That was 29 years ago and I’m still here.
I owe my life to Dr. Ray Troop. Without him, I probably would not have lived a year.
Dr. Troop has taken care of my wife and sent her to a doctor to take care of her problem and she has enjoyed a complete turnaround. He really save her life also.
On behalf of everyone who had the privilege of having Dr. Troop for a doctor, we would like to say thank you for taking care of all of us. Hope you have a great retirement. You will be missed more than you ever know.
