The lack of physicians accepting new patients is becoming a growing problem in the area.
I have had Dr. Blackwood from Pinnacle Cortez for years until his May retirement. Much to my surprise, the doctors currently practicing there refused to keep me as a current patient and treated me as a new patient when calling for my yearly physical -- and they are currently not accepting new patients, forcing me to find a new family physician.
For days I called various family doctors, none of which are accepting new patients.
I am pretty sure I know why my doctor quit (Obamacare) because we talked about it on my visits. So this is what it has become, really?
Never miss a local story.
Maybe I will quit my job, apply for Obamacare and hop on board the socialist wagon! How about that? Because it sure is doing me no good working long hours to earn my privileges anymore!
