On Jan. 18, an article appeared in the Los Angeles Times concerning the establishment of emergency treatment stations in Calabasas. There were several misstatements attributed to Dr. Arnold Bresky that I would like to clarify. Dr. Bresky is quoted as saying that in the time following the Northridge earthquake, West Hills Regional Medical Center was not working or able to function effectively. This is totally erroneous. More than 300 patients were treated after the earthquake on Jan. 17, 1994, in the Emergency Department at West Hills Regional Medical Center.

The story of 11-year-old Ella Moser's $5,000 tummy ache begins in October, when her Studio City parents called their pediatrician one night and were advised to go to an emergency room, just to be safe. Ella's father, John Moser, was mindful of the fact that emergency room costs can be sky high. He's the son of a doctor who teaches medicine at Yale and has written several articles about excessive medical testing and overcharging. But Ella was in a lot of pain and as the pediatrician had advised, it might be smart to rule out appendicitis and other serious ailments.
