Very pleased to see Charles Cole Memorial Hospital adding medical professionals and specialists. There is one aspect that is never addressed though. How many of these professionals actually come here and become part of the community, paying taxes and supporting community, rather than commuting here to provide part-time service and gain government incentives for loan forgiveness, etc.? I get around the towns pretty frequently and I see very few of these folks in local businesses, at local events, meetings, restaurants, etc. Where do they live their lives?

Is he really a local doctor or just visiting and seeing patients part time and then driving home?

Kinda hard to drive home to India

Yes but driving home to Erie or Olean is not too far of a stretch. After all, several of the "local" (wink, wink) doctors do that now.

he lives in Coudersport. Please go introduce yourself to your new neighbor. He hasn't been here only a short period of time and you are already complaining. Unbelievable.

Potter county has a real attitude problem that is preventing them from being a thriving community. Lose the attitude and you might just gain some people who want to live here and start a family or business of their own.

Glad he lives in Potter County. But I see the point of the commenter on here because a lot of these 'local' doctors are just carpetbagging here, getting their money here and then going "home," which is not in Potter County. A sincere WELCOME!!! to Dr. Awada. When your loans are paid and other incentives have expired, please consider staying here and making it your home. Too much revolving door with the so-called "local" doctors. I could make a list but it would be disheartening. I know. I once worked at CCMH back when it was CCMH.

After reading these comments...I sure wouldn't want to live in a community that complains about everything...you all sound like your miserable and bored with your own lives...do you get involved in your community? If doctors read this comments they might think you people do not respect them even though you know nothing about them...at least welcome them and encourage them to stay there with rude comments. Just be glad these great drs even come to these small hospitals.

When all the "locals" like to refer to everyone that wants to move here as a "flatlander" it makes sense why people don't stay. People from this area just aren't welcoming of anyone - obviously unless they think the flatlander has money to spend (like a doctor) in this case.

Ya what businesses does Coudersport have to shop in,?? NO shoe store, clothing, dept store,Kids things, you have to travel an hour or more, to but these things, what a dam shame the town was at one time were we always bought all our things but not any more, hell the grocerie stores aren't even interested in us any more, an as far as resturants, ok ya won't go there

Reading these posts and living here, I can see both sides. I've met people who have moved into the area with hopes and dreams and promises of staying, but due to circumstances (many mentioned in the posts) they chose to leave. The world has changed a lot in the past several years -- thank you technology; we have more but do we really? We have less people in our area, less stores, less industry, and it appears less hope. THINK POSITIVE and be thankful -- it could be a lot worse.

I am a professional who has lived in Potter County for 10 years and is very active in the community. I still get treated like an outsider. If you are not born and raised in Potter County you will always be treated as just that.

It takes 50 years to lose "Flatlander" status. I have 13 more to go... By then I will be retired and moved to Maryland. DRATS !
