An old friend is back. After taking a hiatus from his practice, Dr. Wright Skinner III, MD, is accepting patients. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held May 6, with Williamsburg Regional Hospital CEO Sharon Poston in attendance. “He was away from us for a few years and we’re absolutely thrilled to have him back, and the whole community is thrilled to have him back,” said Poston. “I had so many people talk about waiting for him to get back here. I think there is a list of patients half a mile at least.”

And I can’t thank Sharon enough for sticking by me and everyone else on the staff.”
