Rep. Huffman honors local doctor named Family Physician of the Year


COLUMBUS — State Representatives Stephen Huffman (R-Tipp City) and Keith Faber (R-Celina) presented a resolution recently at an Ohio House session to Dr. Carlos K. Menendez, honoring him for being named “Ohio’s 2017 Family Physician of the Year” by the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians.

“It was an honor to recognize Dr. Menendez on the House floor yesterday for his achievements,” Huffman said. “He has dedicated his entire career to serving his community and practicing family medicine with compassion and excellence.”

This award recognizes family physicians who have exhibited extraordinary, beyond-the-call-of-duty merit, and encouraged colleagues and students to pursue the ideals of family medicine. Dr. Menendez has served as a family physician for over 30 years and has passionately shown his dedication to family practice with the upmost integrity, according to letters submitted by colleagues nominating him for the prestigious award.

Dr. Menendez and his wife, Patti, reside in Greenville and have two sons. He is the medical director for Family Health Services of Darke County Inc., where he has practiced medicine since 1986.
