LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The new doctors are in.
Lufkin Memorial Health System of East Texas welcomed 11 new physicians to the area on Wednesday.
"I came to Lufkin, basically because small communities around the country, not just in Texas, have a void of radiologists that want to do breast imaging," Dr. Christopher Sherman said. "Basically mammographers are in short supply."
Sherman and other new doctors met with department leaders and the executive team at Memorial.
They are all new to the medical staff.
