Dear Dr Arain,
Today, I am very excited to let you know about my Match result. I have been matched to Rosalind Franklin University, Illinois.
Thank you very much again for allowing me to rotate with you and later writing a great recommendation for me. I truly enjoyed my rotation with you and learned many things that I had not learned before. I really appreciate all the support and advice that you gave me during the rotation. The knowledge that I earned from you is very precious and if needed, it will be an honor for me to do anything for you in future.
It is a great feeling to be able to treat a sick patient, who does not have health insurance at the APPNA Health Center. At APPNA, basic treatments are provided at absolutely no cost, and most medications and lab tests are also provided. Specialist services are also available free-of-cost offsite. In one case, a patient was out of insulin and could not afford to buy more. Words cannot explain how he felt when we provided him the sample of insulin. It was like we had given him the most important thing in his life. This is only one of the many examples of how APPNA takes care of the community by providing basic healthcare.
Aside from patients, there are also several students, interns, and phlebotomists who volunteer weekly and benefit from this wonderful organization. Since the clinic began, two doctors who worked at APPNA as interns got accepted into residency programs. Hinsdale Family Practice residency program has added APPNA Community Health Center as a community health service site for their residents’ rotations.
Dr. Imtiaz Arain M.D.
Director APPNA FREE Clinic
