I am sad and appalled at the fact that you could print such an incriminating article about a productive, positive person in our community. It is apparent that you put this article on the front page to increase your reader base, considering how you “worded” the headline.

Yes, apparently it is true that he has been falsely accused of wrong doings – but does that give you the right to damage his reputation (without knowledge of the true facts) by making him look guilty in the community’s eyes, let alone everyone else that logs on to your Web site? Is this truly how you want to encourage potential new readers and fellow citizens of the community to purchase a subscription of your newspaper?

Having been patients and then family friends of Dr. Pfiffner since the year he started his practice in North Bend, you can be assured that my husband and I will both take action supporting him in this ridiculous accusation.
