She is just money hungry Having patients make unnecessary appts. Now she will not accept Medicare. How can someone be so cruel to our older generation.

Medicare has developed onerous policies which are forcing solo doctors out of the program. This patient is angry because she wishes that she could continue have my care under the Medicare system. She should be angry at the government which forced her doctor out of their program, not the doctor who did her best to give her excellent care.
