God help us to find another doctor

To the Editor:

Community Care that is the wrong name; Berne Community Care has let us, the patients, know they will be closing the clinic at the end of June. I am o75 years old and in poor health.

Dr. Mack started the “Vitalists,” what a blessing that has been for me and many others here in the Hilltowns. (I can’t drive anymore.)

This company wants us to go to other places, on Route 146 in Guilderland or on Route 85 in Slingerlands. They do not understand that in winter the roads get slippery and going down the hill can be deadly.

Well it sounds like they don’t care anyway. This is the only doctor’s office up here. God help us to find another doctor and keep this office open.

Rev. Shirley Fronk
