Spread the word: Local doctors nix Medicare

Because I am so healthy, I haven’t seen a regular doctor in maybe 30 years. I phoned one recently to see if I could get an appointment and was told that no doctors in Durango are taking new patients who happen to be on Medicare. I hope I live long enough to see these doctors cross that magic line. Whether I do or not, it’s a fact that you get what you put out (generally with lots of interest) and their return on that decision will be costly.

Meanwhile, I’m thinking that blogging about this situation in Durango is a good idea. Reckon tourists who visit, parents of college students and people coming to Durango because they were hired (such as presidents at Fort Lewis College, ministers, business administrators or business owners) will appreciate this situation?
