  1. Hi,

    My name is Arline Diamond. I was on the staff of UNIS, and know

    David very well.

    The Dr. Milan R. Amin of THE BEST DRS. IN NY located in NYU Medical

    Center 530 First Ave. NYC 10016 212 263 3705 recommended to me

    Chandler Thompson who has two offices 914 493 8188, and another in

    the city which you will have to track down since I do not have her number

    or location.

    I could not find another space to reply to your request.!

    I sent an email to David when I had heard of his problems several weeks

    ago. See if he remembers me!

    He teased me continuously about me wearing too much BLUSH!
