Jefferson Co. hires BC's Satir as interim


Last updated 6/22/2021 at 9:36pm

Dr. Servet Satir picked up some new responsibility across the Neches River Tuesday, but will continue his work at Bridge City’s Golden Triangle Family Care Center.

So says a post on the clinic’s Facebook page Tuesday night.

Jefferson County Commissioners unanimously voted to hire Satir to oversee their county’s employee clinic after the previous doctor resigned.

Dr. George Zuzukin resigned his Jefferson County job following complaints about racially charged posts on his Facebook account.

Satir was hired for 30 days on a trial basis.

“Dr. Satir is not leaving Golden Triangle Family Care Center!” said the Tuesday post on the GTFCC Facebook page.

“This opportunity will allow him to continue to care for his patients in Bridge City and provide support for the Jefferson County Employee Clinic … This will be Dr. Satir’s 23rd year to serve the people of Southeast Texas; it is an honor he cherishes … Again, Dr. Satir is not leaving.”

Several phone calls to a number reported to be Dr. Satir’s were unanswered and messages were not returned Tuesday night.

According to a televised story on Dr. Zuzukin last week, he was paid $1,000 per month by Jefferson County to supervise and sign off on the work of a staff of nurse practitioners.
