aught to be and the way things are

This letter is so well written and professional that it serves as a small public service in-and-of itself. Reading the comments so far, I expect this little post to get some useful and varied responses. But the comments that resonate with me are Nystrom's and similar.

If you don't like the doc's advice you may be free to find another. In a different situation, you may need to accomplish your heath objectives with minimal attention.

You may need to know this subject forward and backward to make sound choices under fire; long distance planning when possible. Best to you and yours.
