Old-fashioned doctor opens black bag of memories

Wednesday, July 17, 2013 by BONNIE LEE STRUNK Special to The Press in Local News

Unlike some folks, Dr. Lloyd Eslinger, of Macungie, never said he got paid peanuts.

Cakes, yes. Potatoes, yes. But not peanuts.

The retired family physician, an Allentown native who had a medical practice in Northampton for 37 years, served a lot of farm families, he recalls.

And when these patients could not pay $3 for an office visit or $4 for a house call, Eslinger accepted food products from their farms instead.

As a sole practitioner working out of the basement of his Northampton split-level house, Eslinger, now 88, says he put in long hours back in the day.
