There is only one pediatrician in Crete!
This could only happen in Crete, as National Health System (PEDY) leaves the island with only one pediatrician!
Hundreds of children cannot have their doctor for health exams or vaccination and their parents are puzzled and indignant.
Speaking to local newspaper “Nea Kriti”, Vassilis Sarris (pediatrician) said that he is the only one on the island, waiting the Ministry of Health to hire more doctors for over eight months.
“It’s impossible to be everywhere on the island. There is a lot of tension. Parents insult me, attack me or even threaten me. No one understands me. Is it possible for a single doctor to serve hundreds of children every day?”, asks Mr. Sarris.
