For those who oppose the traditional family structure, "Introducing LifeStyle Medicine for the Integrated Family" "It's Different, Just Like You!"

I note with interest the emphasis on "Women's Health Services", which for some reason are almost never offered alongside health services for men. I realize it's just a marketing gimmick, but it pisses me off, nonetheless, that services for men aren't important enough to merit a bullet point in anybody's advertising.

Thus, this health care provider need not look forward to the day that I might call upon them for medical attention.

It seems so odd for health care facilities to have commercials and advertisement. I just can't get used to the waste of important resources. It's designed for people to want to use more resources, just like drink more beer or eat more burgers. Disturbing in a many ways….

Nonsense. It's designed for people who want convenient service and are willing to pay for it -- an option that will go straight down the shitter if we put the government in charge (except, of course, for members of Congress).

Yes, things are so much better when we put private industry in charge. A world run by Blackwater, Enron and Bernie Madoff.

Hey, if you are happy with a health care industry that can drop anyone for any reason at any time and decline any claims, by all means, celebrate.

The posting by Integrated Family Medicine shows that their private operation is opposed to public operations. They indicate that they offer immediate assistance, no specified time limits for care, and a willingness to talk to someone who doesn't have insurance.

They don't say that they want to force people to buy insurance or face punitive measures like monetary fines.

Heck, they even say they will "see patients of all ages." Grandpa and grandma won't be talked into assisted suicide; that would be unprofitable and bad for business. Plus, they offer "women's health services'" not "women's death services" which indicates that they are pro-life.
