Local health officials say they finally have the right prescription for low-income people in Erie County.

On Dec. 16, Family Health Services of Erie County -- a new community health center that will primarily serve low-income and Medicaid patients -- is scheduled to open its doors.

Wilson Forney, CEO of the new center, hopes to double the number of low-income patients being treated at the Firelands Regional Medical Center Family Practice Clinic. He makes it his mission to ensure those patients get the same treatment in the same professional atmosphere that other patients expect when they go to the doctor.

Well from first hand , I can tell yea that if it werent for me going to my family doctor that went into a speciality taken and seeing me in the caseI had several years ago ,i can tell yea that Firelands Regional Medical Center Family Practice Clinic. would have killed me .So dont count on them to be there if you really need to see a doctor right away , cause it wont happen I can tell yea that .

In 2002 I was told that I had high blood pressure and that Firelands gave me all the work up and told me to go back to my family Doctor , and at that time I found out my family doctor had went into two specailitys and was on able to see me , but then he said he would , Well then he sent me into Firelands for an echo cardigram in whick it showed a destended arorta valve that was on the verge or leaking or blowing up . So Dr Lister said he was going to admit me into the hospital that day and send me to the Cleveland clinic do to the fact that firelands was not able to do what I needed done .

So when you think about going to Firelands Regional Medical Center Family Practice Clinic.. you better be carefull , cause they dont care in my book about care , Just dollars , or at least that is my Opionion
