    I don’t know when you find the time to write this blog but I wanted you to know that sometimes it is the only thing keeping me smiling. I am a podiatrist and share the same frustrations. I find myself frequently muttering to myself “damn right!” As I read your blog…Thanks for finding levity for us in this evolving healthcare mess.
