Dr. Preston is a resident of Rivet City. You can find him in the Clinic located on the Upper Deck. You can acquire medical supplies from him. If asked if he sells any Chems/Drugs, he will respond by saying, "I'm a doctor, not a dealer".

The player can hack the terminal in his Clinic to find a report on Health Hazards. The report states:

Apart from the standard dangers, Rivet City provides a few uncommon problems for long-time residents:
  • Lockjaw: Muscle spasms, especially of the jaw, from getting cuts on the rusty ship hull. Treat with penicillin, when available.
  • Red-lung: Respiratory problems from regularly inhaling rust particles - particularly a problem for hangar deck residents and shut-ins. Treat with steam therapy and time outside to flush system.
  • Fish poisoning: Less of a problem nowadays, but occasionally someone finds a fish in the river and is dumb enough to try to eat the thing. Radiation levels spike and mercury poisoning drives most victims crazy. No cure, but at least people nearby get a reminder not to do it.

Zimmer recommends speaking to Preston who can be found in the clinic just above the Science Lab, discuss the android with him and he'll give you a holotape.

If the player has installed the Broken Steel DLC and completed this quest by placing the Modified FEV into Project Purity, Preston will tell the player that Rivet City is burning corpses.
