Dear Editor and fellow citizens,
Attention fellow citizens of Appling County; my name is Sarah Leggett Tanaka, an insulin dependent diabetic. In April I had a toe to get infected and I went to see my doctor as usual. They said I would have to see another. I never get to see my doctor. The doctor continuously changed my antibiotics. I told him time after time I needed an x-ray and probably antibiotics through an I.V. He never did either; another toe became infected and moved into the foot and up my leg. I still never got to see my doctor. He never one time saw my foot in the month this went on. On Friday, 5-25-12, I went to the ER. The doctor there never examined my foot just said he was going to change my antibiotic and give me a pain shot. I said, “No, if you can’t help me I am out of here.” It’s a shame when you get sick and can’t even see your doctor and none of the others care.
