Hey, where's the editor? "To ill to travel"?(see sub headline)
"To see _a_ endocrinologist"?
Come on...
Nice article for content, though. Glad the upstate folks are getting some treatment even when they're "to ill to travel"!

I wouldn't want to be treated by a Dr. over the computer. Why can't he go to
the hospital once a month and see the patients?
