Community Dec 04, 2019 by Mac Christie Flamborough Review

After more than 40 years practicing medicine in Waterdown, Dr. James Faught is retiring.

The longtime doctor handed over his practice Dec. 2, but will remain in the office throughout December. To celebrate his retirement, staff are hosting an open house at the Waterdown Legion on Friday, Dec. 6.

“Many, many patients have been crying and will miss him greatly,” she

Jill Scarrow, who works in Faught’s office, said while the celebration was originally going to take place at the 288 Dundas St. East office, it quickly outgrew the space, necessitating the move to the Legion.

“He’s just the most respectful, kindest man,” she said of Faught. “He’s dear to so many people’s hearts.

“Patients have been coming in and saying their goodbyes and the tears people have (shed) would blow your mind.”

Scarrow said Faught has served the Waterdown community since 1978, starting behind Langford’s Pharmacy, which is where Second Time Around is now located. Then in 1979, Faught moved to the current location of Bicycle Works, before moving to his current location at 288 Dundas St. East in 1985.

Scarrow said Faught currently has 1,800 patients rostered, but staff suspects that over the years he has likely seen 2,500 people from the Waterdown and Flamborough areas.

In some cases, Faught has patients from three generations of the same family.

“He even has people he has delivered, where he is now taking care of their children.”

While Faught handed over his practice as of Dec. 2, Scarrow said he will be in the office throughout most of December.

“The other thing that is remarkable about him, is he’s continued through all these years to do house calls,” she said. “And every patient that passes away, he tries to either go to the visitation or the funeral.

“He’s an unbelievable man and he’s very much going to be missed.”

The celebration will be held Friday, Dec. 6 from 2-4 p.m. at the Waterdown Legion.
