Letter to the Editor: Jan Brown


Dear Editor,
Letters-to-the-EditorThis is a nice note I received from one of the visiting Drake University Students. She experienced a bout of our stomach flu whereupon she became dehydrated and dizzy. By the time of day she finally agreed to seek help she had to go to the San Pedro Polyclinic. Below is her comment about the attention and care she received. I’d like to share it with the public so maybe our officials can see what a difference a full time, 24 hour clinic will make to all needing medical attention. By the way, the clinic stayed after their regular hours to give Ms. Burns the hydrating drip and medication and didn’t rush through any procedure. The Drake student did make a donation to say thank you.
Best Regards,
Jan Brown, Marco Gonzalez Maya Site Project

I want to personally thank you for the support and care I received from the San Pedro Polyclinic. The care I received from the San Pedro Polyclinic was excellent and the staff was very kind and supportive. The wait was short and the doctor saw me right away. The nurse made sure I knew what she was doing and I could tell she was passionate about her job. I was shocked when they told me it was all free. I greatly appreciate it and cannot thank you enough.
Thanks again,
Amber Burns
