A Pillar Of The Northeast Kingdom: Remembering Dr. David Toll

Dec 20, 2018

Dr. David Toll was a physician who practiced medicine in St. Johnsbury for decades and connected with patients from across the Northeast Kingdom and northern New Hampshire. He saw patients from childhood into middle age and worked until he himself was 90. And over this weekend, he died. He was 93 years old.

Dr. Lloyd “Tim” Thompson is a retired physician living in Kirby who first came to St. Johnsbury in 1973 and stayed on as a physician in private practice.
