PATIENT 11
(9/11/19)


“it should
be about
the patient

first
and last”

he told
me

he sold
me

after recounting
many insurance
horror stories

I relayed
my own

$2,300
for a $350
test

he had
recently split
from a conventional
practice

started
his own
shop

connected
to a network
of like minded
individuals

I signed up
before
he had even
opened

I asked him
about
the ten
who had joined
before me

“mostly family”

he laughed

a human
doctor

at last
