BUFFALO, NY - Dr. Myron Glick returned Thursday night from Sierra Leone. That's one of the countries in West Africa where the Ebola epidemic continues.
When we caught up with him Sunday afternoon he was doing what many Western New Yorkers were doing at that time ... watching the Bills game with his family.
Dr. Glick's recent trip to Africa was to help set up a new clinic in rural Sierra Leone, where medical care is scarce. Dr. Glick did not treat any Ebola patients and he says he did not come in contact with anyone who appeared to have Ebola symptoms.
On the day-and-a-half return trip, Dr. Glick was checked out multiple times. Now he's monitoring his temperature, reporting back to the Erie County Department of Health twice daily, and feeling just fine.
And, he's seeing patients first thing Monday morning.
