    ...comin', and an even longer time being planned.  I've been cut  back by 2 of my physicians, pulmonolgist for my COPD- emphysema, and my dermatologist.

    My primary physician sold her practice a few years back and went in under a physicians cooperative business group.   She told me that some of my treatments she never even turned in for payment  because the government payments were so small, when she had her own practice, that it wasn't worth the paper to turn them in.

    She was treating me for free.  She joined the collective in order to be salaried.
