    • Thank you so much~ It’s really important to me that you & others know there is a real problem developing state wide first. I’m most grateful for you and your time that you took to comment.

    • Hi Judith~ I apologize for being so long in replying. I’m at the coast with a galpal and have not had time to answer.

      It’s appalling to me that these kind of individuals who claim to have our best interest at heart are liars. Their motives & agendas are not aimed for our benifit, they are aimed only for what they feel makes them look or appear to be on untouchable. I’ll not allow a governement to be making my medical choicess ever. Where did they go to medical school?

You are most welcome to share your thoughts, comments, and/or complaints here. Know though complaints are only handled on the 2nd Tuesday of the week.~ The Management
