  • Back in the 1920s and ‘30s, the doctors had that good bedside manner about them. We never knew what an emergency room was. When the need was there, the doctor came to your home, and he didn’t charge you an arm and a leg, either.
    I guess I am a living example of this. You see, I was born in Peachland, N.C. You might call it a one-horse town back in the day. My dad had a farm with several horses, some cows, a few chickens and a lumber mill business.

  • Dr. William Harris IV is a beloved husband, father, son and a podiatrist with Carolina Podiatry Group in Lancaster and Indian Land. Behind the persona of the soft-spoken bow-tie-wearing doctor beats the warm heart of a man of international good will.
    Only after being prompted by several of his patients did Dr. Harris agree to talk with me about his trip last year to Lagos, Nigeria, to train local health-care professionals.
