Dear Editor: I am sure I don’t stand alone when I say we need doctors in specialized fields here.

But when you get them and don’t keep your appointments, it hurts not only the ones who don’t keep their appointments, but it hurts many of us who keep our appointments.

Many of us living here need a cardiologist or a vascular surgeon or other specialized medical help. We don’t want to travel to Medford or Eureka.

I just learned there were four no-shows when there was a cardiologist here taking Dr. Dorgan’s place. If we keep doing things like this, we’ll never have these specialized doctors coming here.

No wonder many of our doctors are leaving. This is not good. We keep complaining that we never have enough of these doctors. I don’t understand how some people cannot show up for their doctors when their health is in jeopardy.

When they no longer are traveling up to us, saving us from leaving the area, we don’t need to wonder why. No-shows.
