Getting the Right Help is Important for Depression
If you have concerns that you could be suffering from depression, an easy first step is meeting with your doctor to discuss how you are feeling.

I should say that I am not opposed to medicines and am on statins for cholesterol. I am over 60 and may be switching to TriCare this year as I am a retired Coast Guard Chief. I too like the music around Lincoln: Stranski, Foundation Gardens, South Point, coffee shops, and Foundation Gardens. I love my 6 kids (all grown) and my girlfriend of 35 years. Again, thank you for your time. Please consider whether you would like me as a patient.
I am looking for a doctor that I can talk to about changing my health through diet changes or even supplements. I love St. Es though I am not Catholic. I love Jesus and believe as much in prayer as medicine. I see on my UHC that you are not taking patients but thought I would ask anyway if you would consider being my doctor. Please consider it and let me know.
