  • Regarding the Coronavirus Vaccine

    Andrew Fahlgren|Jan 27, 2021

    Dear Editor, I have been in practice as a physician in Glasgow for just over three years, and the past year has certainly been difficult for me, my staff and our patients.

Because I know that many people in the community share those same concerns, I would like to reassure the... Full story

I grew up always having extra mittens, scarves, etc packed in the vehicle in the event you got stranded. Can you even imagine what it must have been like when you where... Full story

And I remembered in time to get it done, which is also surprising. As my youngest says, "Go, me!". So, living life and gathering info...
