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.
Impressed that a lot of teachers are reading this material. Your site is the Writing on the Wall. Keep it coming!
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.
Don't you ever dare to stop being The Voice of Reason!
Thank you for your continuing good works. I always enjoy hearing from you, and plan to visit your new site often!
Good luck with your crusade - not as funny as PJ, but unfortunately
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.
I've been receiving your information for many years ... most enjoyable.
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.
Great job, Doug! Blessings on your efforts, Doctor!
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.
Hey - I really like the concept and the site design. Great job!
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.
Keep up the good work. You brighten every Wednesday.
Every week I look forward to your latest Gazette and for several years have intended to let you know how great they are. I forward it to many other family members and friends who for whatever reason don't subscribe, but like my forwards (or so I think).
Your latest Gazette exemplified my sentiments so accurately (and humorously) I am now finally contacting you. Keep up the 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?
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 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.
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.
