Dear Editor,

To the community of Bowman, I am writing this letter to thank the people of Bowman and all of the surrounding communities for the honor of serving as a physician at Southwest Healthcare Services. For the last three years, I have enjoyed my time in Bowman, serving as the doctor at the local hospital. Having worked in Watford City before at McKenzie County Hospital, this was an opportunity to live in a local, small community not as affected by the oil boom.

I have had an opportunity to meet most of the town in my travels around Bowman and in meeting the patients at the hospital. You have always treated me well from the start and without exception.

I’m so impressed at the community’s commitment to the hospital, and the hospital’s staff commitment to the community.

My decision to leave has been multifactorial, but most notably is the continued chaos created on the east coast from the Coronavirus as my family remains in the New York area. This has been the major impetus to return home.

I wish the Bowman community the best and will remember you fondly.

Yours truly,

Matthew Feller MD
