A urology-eye view of an earthquake
I first learned of the earthquake after returning from a hike in which I was out of cellphone contact. The first emails from my urologist and practice manager colleagues were of the "did you feel that " nature. The quake occurred during office hours for most practices. A colleague in Indiana felt the quake. So did one in Staten Island and another Rhode Island. My own office I'm Smithtown Long Island shook for 3 minutes. My staff evacuated. I was not present. I wonder is there were any surgical mishaps caused by the quake.
I am an independent urologist in Smithtown NY, on Long Island's north shore of Suffolk County. I practice academic level urology in a community setting. Prospective patients can reach me by phone, fax, or webform.
