Call in to speak with over sixty doctors at Tuesday's Health Hotline

Here at WWAY, we are gearing up for our annual Health Hotline with the New Hanover - Pender County Medical Society. On Tuesday, you will have the chance to call in and speak to more than sixty doctors who will be standing by throughout the day at Independence Mall. The calls are anonymous and the doctors are experts in a variety of specialties. Urologist Edward Whitesides has participated for 15 years and said it is a great way for people to ask medical questions. "It just offers a good chance for people to ask questions that they forgot to ask their doctor at their regular visit, or maybe they saw something on TV and wondered whether it applied to them." As we get closer to the event, we will let you know the number to the Health Hotline. There will also be a Health Fair at the same time of the hotline, which will offer free health screenings.

How Rude

I called the health hotline on Tuesday. The person who answered the phone was polit at first. As soon as I gave my zip code boy did his tune change. I asked to speak to a cardiologist and was told the cardiologist was busy and to call back in 10 minutes. I called back and the clown who answered the phone was RUDER than before. This time he did NOT ask my zip code but mockingly told me that the cadiologist had "just left". I would appreciate if WWAY would clarify who is and is not welcome to call. If Brunswick County residents are NOT welcome, just say so. There is no need for rudeness and condescending remarks. How very unprofessional and uncalled for.
