Date of transcription 12/13/78

Dr. Albert Aaron Greenfield, # 2 Colebrook Court, Potomac, Maryland 20854, home telephone [deleted] self-employed as an obstetrician at 13-15 E. Deerpark Drive, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20760, business telephone 977-0500, advised of the following:

He was contacted by Richard Hayman, a neighbor, on February 15, 1978, regarding a distress call Hayman received over his ham radio from Guyana. Hayman patched through to Dr. Schacht from the Mission Village in Guyana to Greenfield’s home telephone. Greenfield and Schacht discussed the condition of a woman whose pregnancy was two weeks overdue. Schacht advised that the weather conditions were such that the woman could not be transported to a medical center. Greenfield determined from speaking to Schacht that Schacht was in possession of the basic equipment to perform a cesarean on the woman and; therefore, Greenfield orally advised Schacht step-by-step through the operation.

Dr. Greenfield advised that on February 16, 1978, Hayman reestablished contact with the Mission Village in Guyana and he (Greenfield) spoke with an unidentified radio operator of the Mission Village regarding the condition of the woman operated on the previous day.

Dr. Greenfield made no further effort to contact the Mission Village after February 16, 1978, and he has no knowledge as to the conditions which existed there prior to or during Congressman Ryan’s inspection.
