The New Orleans medical community, and our WWL-TV family, is remembering a noted local doctor, Charles Farris.

Dr. Farris died Monday after a short illness.

Dr. Farris was an OB-GYN for more than 60 years, and delivered some 15,000 babies during his career at Ochsner-Baptist Hospital.

Farris was also a noted expert on women's health issues, particularly hormone replacement therapy.

He is the father of Medical Reporter Meg Farris, and her five brothers.

Dr. Charles Farris was 87.

Visitation services will be held tonight from 5:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. and tomorrow from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. at Lake Lawn Metairie Funeral Home. A funeral mass will follow.
