December 1st, 2007 by Larry Smith  

Dr. LutzA.D. character Dr. Brobson Lutz, former director of the New Orleans Health Department, talks about various agencies’ attempts to provide medical services in the weeks after the levees broke.
“The FEMA clinic was hidden in the bowels of the Royal Orleans Hotel,” the Doctor recalls. “It was hard to find, even if you knew it was there. It was staffed by from people who were really not from this area. … There was some funny medicine going on there.” Press play below for more street scenes from the doctor.
