Rochester Roots: Anthony Jordan, "The doctor who would come"

February 12, 2018 06:10 AM

News10NBC celebrates Black History Month by honoring people and places that have paved the way for many in the Rochester area. 

Anthony Jordan wasn't the first African-American doctor in Rochester, but he was a strong second. Called the "doctor who would come", this physician served patients both on house calls and out of his Adam Street home, accepting barter when patients insisted on paying him.

In honor of his civic-mindedness, the Rochester Neighborhood Health Center dedicated a center to him in 1973 and it still serves thousands of people in this community.

That is why Anthony Jordan is a part of our Rochester Roots.
