Finally, one of us has stepped forward to confirm that indeed, the emperor has no clothes. So many docs are so busy being “providers” that they cannot see what is being lost day by day. You are accelerating the “wake-up” point and may just be the catalyst to doctors seeing through the veil that keeps them moving into this madness. May you be guided to continue this important work, inspire other doctors to find the courage to listen to their higher wiser self, and to take action to restore the dignity and sacredness of the doctor/healer-patient relationship.
Keep up the good work. You brighten every Wednesday.
Don't you ever dare to stop being The Voice of Reason!
I am a doctor in Australia. Your expertise is in the American system, and it helps me cope with the crap in the Australian system.
Impressed that a lot of teachers are reading this material. Your site is the Writing on the Wall. Keep it coming!
I am a former subscriber to the magazine and read its follow-up (Authentic Medicine) religiously. I even send out some of my favorites on LinkedIn and Twitter. I ain’t going anywhere.
Hey - I really like the concept and the site design. Great job!
I’ve been following you for years (as a biomedical researcher), and your
candor always strikes home. I wanted to quickly send you an email saying that your new format makes a
world of difference. Very excellent work. Thanks for all you do.
Thank you, Doug, for validating our voices.
Good luck with your crusade - not as funny as PJ, but unfortunately
I've been receiving your information for many years ... most enjoyable.
I enjoy your site. I appreciate your heartfelt concern for patients and your irritation at the “solutions” suggested/mandated by outsiders (e.g. politicians). I don’t always agree with you (I’m adamantly for universal/single payer healthcare), but I appreciate your struggle. Keep up the good work.
The new site looks great so far. I actually like the black and white look too - reminiscent of "old" medicine! I've always enjoyed the PJ, sent to me a few years ago by a friend. Keep it up, please.
Thinking person's blog, whether you are in medicine or not. I'd rather
have someone who thinks, whether its "right" or "wrong" then what I'm
Great job, Doug! Blessings on your efforts, Doctor!
Thanks for 10 years of keeping those of us in the front lines smiling. While some would say it's not professional- it is. They have just been out of touch for so long they don't realize it's what those of us that are still doing it stay sane (35+ years for me). Remember, never look @ life head-on""- slightly ""scewed"" will keep you going
Hi Dr. Farrago,
You provide a valuable service to both the public and to members of your profession. Keep up the great work and put me on your mailing list. Blessings, best wishes, and Godspeed.
Thank you for your continuing good works. I always enjoy hearing from you, and plan to visit your new site often!
As a nurse for 20 years, I too am sick of the sick care that we healthcare
professionals are suppose to dish out. My idea is to change the disease care system
that we have to a truly "healthcare" system. Abolish all agencies that stand in the
way of that. Let your imagination roam on that last one.
I've followed your writing via email for years now, I suppose. It's time to say thank you for all the heart and soul you have put in to entertaining and educating so many of us. Thank you.
