Richard C. Cole, MD

I grew up in Claudville on a horse farm.  I became interested in medicine at age 5.  When the Claudville Clinic opened, I hoped that I could return there to practice. When I learned of the specialty of Family Practice being formed in 1969, I knew that it was well suited for what I wanted to do.  My interest in medicine grew through my interest in sports and taking care of horses.  I appreciate the guidance from my parents, teachers, and mentors who helped me along the way.  I graduated from Patrick County High School in 1973.   I began practice in Patrick County in 1984. Astrid and I were married in 1984 and have 6 children.
