  1. I’ve had a 25 year business relationship with our medical community. Since 2008 /ACA I’ve witnessed the best of our physicians retire rather than practice beholden to Gov. What they’ve been replaced with are practitioners whose primary responsibility is to ‘public health’ and not individual patient’s wellbeing. In early 2021 after recovering from what could have been Coof (but more likely flu) I saw my MD hoping to get an antigen test -which of course was cost prohibitive. Even though she agreed I likely already had the coof she was very anxious to schedule me for a free jab just as soon as I was eligible!
    She’s been replaced.
