Bethel doctor closes practice without notice to patients

BETHEL, OH (FOX19) - Several patients were left with the feeling of abandonment after a doctor's office suddenly closed without any notice.

Dr. Curtis Everson shut down the Bethel Urgent Care, located in the 700 block of W. Plane Road. The closure happened about a month ago without telling any of his patients.

The Bethel Police Department says they received several calls regarding Dr. Everson's whereabouts.

As a result, patients have been left wondering where they will get their prescriptions refilled, and how to retrieve their medical records.

"It's extremely strange. I've been seeing Dr. Everson for about nine years since I was pregnant with my oldest, and he had been seeming a little different lately, but the fact that he would disappear completely on his patients is just very strange to me," said Stephanie Jones, a patient of Everson.

***UPDATE: Patients can call (513) 768-3222 and leave a name and phone number to obtain medical records.
