“I’ve lost my job and so I’ve lost everything."
Today’s voice mail message: “I’ve lost my job and so I’ve lost everything. I’ve been going to the Free Clinic, but since I just got my unemployment check, I can’t even go there. How am I supposed to pay for a doctor’s visit for my high blood pressure? I need another colonoscopy because I’ve already had polyps taken off of me and my father died from colon cancer.” She needs a referral for a mammogram-when I told her to come in for a visit and office visits at our new clinic are just $20.00, she said “right now, I have $21.00 and I guess I have to hang on to it.”
