Free medical clinic comes to Pikeville
PIKEVILLE — Timmy Yuhas needed eyeglasses and help for his teeth. Brenda Fraley came for dental work, a Pap smear and a mammogram. Sheila McCartey hoped to get a partial denture and a tooth pulled. Tamra Rasnick needed glasses because she can’t drive without them. Pauline Rife needed pain relief: She wanted her teeth pulled, as many as they would take.
None of them has enough insurance or enough money to pay for the medical care they needed on their own. So on Saturday they went to the Remote Area Medical clinic at Pike County Central High School, where volunteer dentists, nurses and doctors were providing free health care.
