From November 16, 2019
My asthma doctor called at 9:00am yesterday morning. He said the surgeon had yet to respond to his call. He suggested that instead of waiting for a call that might not come that I should go to the Emergency Room of the Cleveland Clinic in Vero Beach, which is about 20 miles north of my Florida residence. I confess that I felt crestfallen. I anticipated going to a private doctor, a highly regarded surgeon, and suddenly I was going to an emergency room.
