The media portrayed scenes of just terror, frankly, particularly at Elmhurst Hospital. You see these lines of people that are waiting outside with so much anxiety and you know where that place is, you’ve driven past, you’ve seen with your own eyes that this is in your backyard. Then it starts hitting very close to home. —Akhilesh K. Sista, MD, FSIR
