Letter to the Editor: Medical and political decisions

Recently the decisions of a few local doctors and politicians are creating unintended consequences for the majority so they can serve the minority.

Example one is this MDVIP medical program where a few doctors decided to dump the majority of their patients in order to serve a few hundred. I suppose the annual fee of $1,800 is a great incentive for these doctors while they try to justify the charge under a yet unknown level of personal service.

Example two are some politicians who want to introduce trivial legislation to serve their ego and few of their friends while they can hopefully justify keeping their position. point is Too many changes in a short period of time creates short and long problems for the masses.

Perhaps it’s time to focus on the importance issues like making sure this area does not have a family doctor shortage and focus on important political matters rather then feel-good matters to justify ones’ position.
