Question: What do we as individuals fear the most when it comes to the health care debate?  As a physician who over 25 years of experience I will provide the answer. It is fear of becoming bankrupt from an unforeseen health care event and its unexpected costs. The prospect of short term financial difficulties is what keeps individuals "strapped to" the first dollar insurance model.  

Urticaria, more commonly known as "hives," is a skin reaction resulting in red, itchy bumps of varying size that fade and reappear as the reaction runs its course.

President's Message
Raymond Kordonowy, MD
Dear IPALC Patrons:


Summer is upon us. I hope everyone enjoys their
outings with family. 

There is a lot of  attention in the media about who is wasting our health care dollars. This includes: $8,000 CT scans by  your local hospital system and kickbacks for prescription benefit management companies like Express Scripts and Caremark. IPALC has been trying to prepare Lee county physicians, businesses and patients for a change in the status quo.

Check out our newsletter titles and engage the links to see how some of this change is going to benefit  the average person.

Have a safe and healthy summer!

Dr. Raymond Kordonowy, IPALC President
