    Glad to hear something is being at least looked at. The primary care clinics are so understaffed that the patients in the Primary Care Blue Clinic stand up and complain loudly at times to the nurses and clerks in the waiting room. I have seen a diabetic man waiting for more than 4 hours without having eaten all day, and then being sent home because there was no doctor to see him. At the same time we were waiting on a doctor for hours and she never showed up. We were sent home and told they would call in some medicine for us. They have no permanent doctor in the Blue Clinic and furthermore can not get a doctor to stay more than 4 weeks and some stay only 2 weeks. Something is wrong with this picture.
