Hello, I read your web site frequently and am thankful for your work. As a prior resident from Mid-west, I am concerned about the standards of health care. Physicians and Dentist are not mandated by the state to take Continuing Education Courses. Many are in the time warp when they finished school. I called CDC after several doctors told me information that was 20 years outdated. The 'hot line' person told me the best health care was in the Mid-west & East mostly due to the lack of mandated Continuing Education. And I am puzzled by the law here that Physicians and Dentists employed by the state as Educators are 'free from retribution' and if a client appeals to the State, they are not to expect little if any compenstation. According to the Governor to reduce 'fraud & 'kick backs', the State has merged Public and Private Facilities as well as providers. I cannot see the benefit of those laws for clients, can you? Good luck & please keep up your great work.
