Fredericton doctor leaving practice after 15 years of practicing family medicine

A doctor in Fredericton is leaving her practice at the Southside Pharmacy building on Prospect Street. 

Ed Schollenberg, the registrar of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New Brunswick, has confirmed to The Daily Gleaner that Dr. Savita Karol has informed the college she will be closing her practice.  

A note posted on Karol's office door says after 15 years of practicing family medicine she will close her Fredericton office on July 7th, adding that there is currently no physician to replace her. 

The doctor's receptionist told The Daily Gleaner that Karol did not wish to speak with the media at this time.
