    Attention Dr. Nolfi,

    Yesterday I got a phone call concerning an appointment I had missed, they were wondering why. This was a surprise since I didn’t know about any appointment with the specialist from Toronto Western Hospital. No one had ever called me!
    I would REALLY LIKE to go to Southlake Hospital in Newmarket. It"s on the same road where I live, I’m approx.. 12-15 min east. I find it hard to believe they wouldn’t have an eye specialist there. Also, does that hospital know I actually reside in the area and not Toronto?
    Besides being much further away for me, I’d need to discover the best route to take and if there’s parking available, which requires me to take a trial run to Toronto.
    You told me not to be worried, stressed but that’s all I am, I’m not happy!
    As for my eyes, they feel fine.
    I did forget to mention that the cospot drops you wrote the prescription for… the last 2 refills Iv’e had are now generic, unable to get the original which I’d prefer, til perhaps June.
    Also, hope you and your family had a great vacation!
