Longtime Phoebe doc retires

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - After a career of nearly half a century, Dr. Phillip Roberts has hung up his stethoscope.

At a ceremony Tuesday at Phoebe Putney, Roberts bid farewell to staff and colleagues, saying he planned "to have a second cup of coffee."

Jeff  'Bodine'  Sinyard read a proclamation on Dr. Roberts' behalf, and a portrait of the doctor was unveiled. It will hang inside the hospital.

Roberts was at Phoebe for almost 35 years.
