John Ratliff — “Dr. John” to his patients — was a throwback to a bygone era.
During his 41 years practicing medicine in Lebanon, he made house calls, he was sometimes paid with country hams or chickens, and, according to Pam Moraja, it was common to see Ratliff sitting in his office with a pipe in his mouth.
When Ratliff, 93, passed away May 30, it was personal for Moraja. Her mother had worked for him for 30 years.
