    Dr Young, I love your site; you are thinking the way I am thinking. I am solo in Port Arthur, Texas right down the road from you. Next time I am in Fort Worth will look you up. Keep up the good work. As you can see I am at the office doing paper work.

      Dr. Updike, thanks for the encouraging words. I guess this means I’ll have to keep it up.

    Dr. Young,

    So great to discover a nearby voice of reason, hope, light…

    I will be following, as they say, “with great interest” and doing my best to support and encourage…

    Just came across this work. Heart warming. I have some idea how much commitment/passion to the professional purpose of Health Care it takes to cover the path you are on. Of course your satisfaction is in the doing of the work; but it also helps to be reminded that you are not alone. Some exemplars we both seem to know (cf. the bio): Ralph DeFronzo, Dr. Fordtran, Jean Wiloson? GREAT GOING. PLEASE KEEP IT UP: We cannot give up on the calling of Health Care as a sublime ministry of Humanknind to Humankind.
