  1. Dr. Colasante,

    I have been monitoring your blog for a while, as I heard about it from a fellow nurse friend. I just want to start out by saying I am terribly sorry this is all happening to you. It is truly a shame. You are a fine physician, doing the very best you can for your patients. I am outraged by the actions of the Government. What happened to a government of the people, by the people, for the people? At the end of the day, justice and truth will prevail but I hope it comes sooner rather than later. Thank you for providing medical care to the WHOLE person and not just whatever portion will make you the most money, you are truly an asset to this community. Thank you again for all you do.
