The Mountain Doctor

Record #:
Subject of the biography, Mountain Doctor, Dr. Gaine Cannon found his calling consummated in the North Carolina mountains. The people he treated, mostly lacking prior experience with physicians, saw him as more than such in their affectionate appellation Doc Cannon. The community also displayed a great value for his compassionate care in fulfilling his dream of a community medical center. First named Albert Schweitzer Memorial Hospital, it was Balsam Grove Medical Clinic the last three years of its existence.
