My wife has been trying to get my 85-year-old Uncle, who lives in Ocean County, an appointment for the past month. She was finally able to get him one at CentraState Hospital in Freehold. My wife and I were both fortunate to secure appointments at the Atlantic City Convention Center for later this month.
