    Went from Baystate Frankiln where I was earlier in the ED to. Dr. Lotufo's office and he looked eye and with out hesitation recommended a Carotid artery study. Went back to Baystate, had the study and found I had had a stroke. Was then immediately was transported to Baystate Springfield in ambulance. Thank you thank you for your care. As you know or do not know the reports are transcribed by a secretary which takes time. Dr Lotufo typed out the report Himself and handed the report to me.
