Hello Dr. K-------.

I am looking forward to our chat next week. I have been looking at the DPC model for some time.

There seems to be a door entry fee for getting most any health care over the last 17 months, that has shunted most other considerations aside. So, I am using the opportunity of this email to address the 1,000 ton elephant in the room, covid 19. I am not vaccinated and I have no plans to be so at this time. I would like to see its effects 12/24/36 months out before I would consider its efficacy. If I was to contract covid, ivermectin would be what I would initially prefer to try (at this time).

I also do not believe in the efficacy of mask use. If the population used n95 masks exclusively and changed the mask frequently when it becomes fouled, I am still not sure they would be of much use. Possibly in confined settings for very short durations of time? But with double, triple or even quintuple masking "foggy glasses" is still an issue. And if expelled water vapor can create foggy glasses, then what is the point? This issue seems performative in nature, at best.

So I wonder how you will react to what I just wrote? I would have much rather led with various health concerns of mine, but refer back to that 1,000 elephant in the room- every room it seems- where health care is currently dispensed. Covid is real. And it has killed many. Our collective approach is not clear and at times not rational. Instead, I have focused over the last 17 months on diet, exercise, getting plenty of sunshine and being outdoors as much as I can. (It helps that my family runs a small farm > web address of our farm ) I do not think I have had covid, but does not rate high as a concern of mine. Cancer has killed almost every person in my family over the last three generations. That is a concern of mine. When I had genetic testing done in 2015, it was determined (as best the current tech can), that I have a annual 5% chance of pancreatic cancer (which killed my father and paternal grandfather) and a annual 1.5% chance of breast cancer (which killed my paternal grandmother and others).

Instead of using all of the 15 minutes talking about this Monday (in a pre consult chat), I instead chose to place my cards on the table for you to consider beforehand. I look forward to Monday. It could potentially be a transformative day in my healthcare. I do hope it is. Cheers.

We are alive and well in Kodiak, AK!

It’s taken us a bit to catch our breath from the effort it took to move ourselves from CT to AK! We have been here 3 months already and are settling nicely into an amazing next part of our lives!

A Bear Over There

I had an opportunity to go for my usual neighborhood walk this morning. It hasn't been possible recently as early November brought the first snow (a few inches), sideways rain, wind (sustained 50+mph for a week) and ice. We have had a warm spell the last few days (mid 40s) so most of the ice is gone. (As an aside Deadman's Curve en route to the town of Kodiak has a whole new meaning when the roads are icy.) Anyways, so my walk this morning. Dressed in two layers, with my walking umbrella (more on that later) and my crampons (or ice cleats as they are called here) I was off. When I tried to walk up the ridge a few days ago I kept sliding down the road, but today traction was good. I walked past a neighbor on my way and his dog. We chatted briefly about the weather and I petted his dog. (Good doggo.) The trail was not too flooded or ice choked and I carefully picked my way along until I gained a little elevation and then it was fine. I watched the many bald and golden eagles as they hunted or ...
