Calling Dr. Meilman, calling Dr. Meilman. That was the urgent message coming out of the Hyatt Regency last Sunday when a woman from Chicago, in her 80s, became ill.
It seems the woman, who was attending the Polish National Alliance convention, knew of only one local doctor, Dr. Jeffrey Meilman. She apparently had read of the doctor's extensive volunteer work in Poland.
To be quite blunt, the lady demanded Dr. Meilman and no one else. And believe it or not, the good doctor responded. He not only made a house call to the Hyatt, he took her to a pharmacy.
And our hero didn't even charge her.
