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
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.
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.
Don't you ever dare to stop being The Voice of Reason!
Just a quickie to let you know that what you do is very appreciated amongst the masses of us frustrated physicians, especially those of us who have seen the practice of medicine gradually morph from an honorable, respected profession to one a being tarnished by an overwhelming, protocol-spewing bureaucracy that is threatening to choke us all. You provide a great outlet to us.
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.
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.
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.
Thank you for your continuing good works. I always enjoy hearing from you, and plan to visit your new site often!
Thank you, Doug, for validating our voices.
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.
I've been receiving your information for many years ... most enjoyable.
Great job, Doug! Blessings on your efforts, Doctor!
Keep up the good work. We need more physicians like you to take a ( politically incorrect) stand and prevent the wholesale destruction of our profession.
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
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.
Hey - I really like the concept and the site design. Great job!
I did laugh and cry over this issue. Every single, last topic was great, and spot-on.
How can we help get the message out other than telling our colleagues and forwarding your emails?
Keep up the good work. You brighten every Wednesday.
