I accompanied the good doctor

Re: Doctor disciplined, April 2.

I found myself to be quite disappointed in the character and lack of relative information provided in this article.

If I had not actually accompanied Dr. Clelland on this particular visit to the Dominican Republic and, instead, had simply read this article without any background knowledge of the event I would have been lead to assume that Dr.Clelland’s actions were to be quite outrageous and nothing less than unacceptable. However, luckily I am not subject to this imposed ignorance. Though her actions were unprofessional, they were not as criminal as proposed.

Once obtaining her utterly disgraceful substances of children’s vitamins, burn cream, malaria medication and anti-parasetic cream she then continued with her evil plot by issuing these materials to a professional Haitian doctor who travelled to provide required care to the poorer citizens and refugees of the Dominican Republic.

To conclude her visit to the Caribbean, Dr. Clelland visited and volunteered at local schools while also meeting with local physicians to discuss how to benefit and improve the medical care and treatments that were provided to the people. As you can see, these can hardly be classified as criminal actions.

The only question I have for the editor is why was there such a limited amount of information provided in this article?

I strongly recommend, for the reputation of the Gazette, that it maintains the image of a professional newspaper and not subject its articles to the ‘unprofessional conduct’ of a tabloid.
