In last week’s issue of the Metro Spirit, our weekly columnist Austin Rhodes inadvertently included inaccurate information on a very prominent and well-respected local physician, Dr. Ronald Jowers.
Dr. Jowers and his staff recently gave their full cooperation to Drug Enforcement Agency personnel auditing prescription drug distribution. At no time were the prescription privileges of Dr. Jowers ever impacted, nor were any issues discovered by the DEA that would negatively impact his practice.
Rhodes deeply regrets any hardship the inaccurate information that was included his column may have caused Dr. Jowers.
For more than 25 years, the Metro Spirit has been committed to providing its readers accurate information.
In the future, if there is information in Rhodes’ column that cannot be verified prior to deadline, the Metro Spirit will err on the side of caution.
Both the Metro Spirit and Rhodes apologize for the error and thank Dr. Jowers for being so understanding in this matter.
