Local Pediatrician Honored

A local pediatrician was honored Friday when a health department was renamed after him.

Friday Pitt County Commissioners and local dignitaries unveiled the renaming of the public health department as "Doctor Earl Trevathan Junior Public Health Center."

The pediatric doctor from Greenville started his practice in 1954 on Fifth Street and has dedicated his life to public health for more than 60-years.

Commissioners say Dr. Trevathan dedicated his life to changing the way people are cared for in Pitt County and is the reason they chose to name health department after him.

    I am so proud to see this happen for a truly wonderful man. He was my doctor, and my daughter's doctor (until he retired). I remember bringing him my report cards from elementary school; he always took time to read them and encourage me to keep my grades up. A true class act in every sense of the word, and this honor is long overdue. Congratulations, Dr. Trevathan!!

    Dr. Trevathan was done so much for our area. I am so happy he is now honored, however he should have been honored way before now. Shame on the Daily Reflector for not putting his story on the front page of the paper.

    Great Doctor! He was the only doctor back in 1975 that could diagnose my condition of Tourette Syndrome. Very compassionate doctor who changed my life and will always be glad of the care I received. I'm a local electrician today and have come a long way, which started with his help all those years ago. Thanks to a great person in his field. God Bless.
