The holidays are a time for sharing gifts and for hopes of a brighter year ahead. I want to thank those people who follow me on social media and who have taken the time to write to me. Your reaching out has been a real gift to me in my retirement from clinical practice. One writer asked that I share with patients a link to Medicare service offerings, setting out those medical, surgical and vision services covered (and those that are uncovered by law). Thanks for your support! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and best wishes for a healthy and Happy New Year!
