Clearing up concerns

If my previous letter has put some people into panic mode I do apologize

Dear Editor,

Well, it seems I have created a bit of a stir for some residents of this wonderful town and surrounding area with my Letter to the Editor published last week and now must withdraw or try to explain some of my comments, so here goes…

I have now learned that my comments about seeing doctors at the clinic in the hospital have been taken out of context by a few or perhaps I did not word my thoughts appropriately.

You can and will have your own doctor who will get to know you on a medical basis and who would be available to you. The situation is that if your personal doctor is not available for an emergency, you will see another doctor or you may be referred to the clinic as a walk – in patient.

I have also learned that the transportation survey many of us completed has been studied and that prior to the survey committees were working on solving this problem of transport to the clinic for those who can not drive themselves or can not afford to pay to get up to the clinic… a phone number is soon to be published in the papers where people can phone, say ‘ I have an appointment with my doctor and could I please get a ride to the clinic,’ at such and such a time.

Another thing I have learned is that the hospital will have (or perhaps already has recently installed) tele-help – where doctors have access to specialists who can receive your information via tele-help and advise the local doctors as to what care is necessary to help you, the patient.

If my previous letter has put some people into panic mode I do apologize – I was not trying to cause problems, rather I was trying to express my concerns. They have now been cleared up to me and now I do the same back to you. I am truly hopeful that the plans in progress, many of which we are not yet aware, will bring Princeton into the future.

Lynn Boyd, Princeton
