>>>>>[Well, after several months of running around Lone Star, the FBI,
InterPol, and whoever else has been trying to turn Redmond into thier own private hunting
grounds, trying to find my new clinic before I got it up and running, I'm pleased to
announce that it's back up.

Contact your street docs if you want us to do work, as we're
working on referral only, although there may be the
occcasional exception. That limits our exposure and also
shows you that we're reputable....unless you have a drekky
street doc, that is.

Just to reiterate the precautions, you contact us via your
doc or fixer. We accept or deny you based on whether we
think you constitute a security risk or not, and your
ability to pay our bill. If we accept you, you are given a
location and a time, and if you're not there when we pull up
in our vehicle, you're SOL. You deactivate any and all
tracking and locating devices, turn over all weapons, and
agree to whatever additional security the driver and
assistant require, or we drive away. If you try to sneak
any of them in under the cyberscanners, chemsniffers, MRI
weapon scanners, and other detectors we have in the car,
you'll either be thrown out of the car, or, if you
successfully make it to the clinic, you'll be killed
immediately, NO exceptions. This is just so you know the

But we're back in business.]<<<<<

>>>>>[My metatype is my own buisness, but hardly a secret. My expertise in
cybernetics implant surgery, specifically headware, is a matter of public record, as is my
assistance given to various charities. Specifically, you'll find that I often give my
time, money, and supplies to Haven when, as they were several months ago, they are
overwhelmed with injuries which must be treated. Myself and my fellow cybersurgeons saved
many lives working long shifts.]<<<<<

died which might not have needed to die. But like I said, I know better.

How's buisness, Alex? I hear it's booming.]<<<<<

Actually, Ein_Schuss, I've never heard of AJ snaking while doing med work.
And he's still one of the more reliable and humanitarian street docs I've
ever met. Now that could mean that AJ is a poster boy for morals, or it
could mean that I hang with some pretty twisted folks. Personaly I figure
its somewhere in between.]<<<<<
