in Roanoke Rapids, NC 27870 |
Dr Baaklini, I was a patient of yours in Roanoke Rapids NC 27870. I let you keep my private files of studies and research's I have did and been through. Duke Hospital was the hospital I went through the test studies and since it was a test study the Hospital don't keep them in their files. I let you keep them for your learning and to make a "copy" and you knew that, not for you to steal my files and take them to Texas~ I Need them files back Sir~ Please~ Thank You in Advance~ Paula Barlowe
