Thanks for the show! You helped me appreciate my 80-year-old, independently practicing doc who has cared for our family for 35 years – we love him dearly. His accumulated bounty of experience and reasonable, pragmatic approach has medically both saved and salved us over the years. I have hope that this close-to-extinct species of family physician may find renewed proliferation as individuals flee the pressures of the current medical climate; as those such as Dr. Tro seek greater autonomy and fulfillment in their calling to heal and cure. I wish Dr. Tro success in his venture.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
