Small town care

July 8, 2011

Osakis, MN 2010

Check out this story from Minnesota Public Radio:

“Doctor as renegade – accepts cash, checks, eggs or pie, not insurance”

It’s about a small-town “renegade” doctor who is passionate about her job and lets patients pay with whatever they can afford, whether it’s cash, check, or eggs from the farm. My friend told me about the story this morning which is perfect timing since I’m driving up to Osakis tomorrow to spend the weekend there. I’ve loved this little town for years and it’s great to see one of its residents making the news for doing something good for the community. As a patient myself, who is continually fighting against rising health insurance costs and just the health care industry in general, Dr. Wasson is certainly a breath of fresh air.
