I think it is a very interesting idea, and could grow into something very useful. Not everyone has health insurance, or can get into the doctor's office or clinic.

I had read about this with great interest. I use homeopathic medicine, and don't have much use for the Big Medical Machine (probably because I avoid it by not loading up with prescription meds with side effects that need more meds, more side effects, more meds). Something basic though, might be something I would need advice on, and this would certainly fit the bill for such a thing. We both are veterans and have signed up for VA Healthcare, but don't use that, as the one time I went, they were just too much up in my business. I don't want to be a lab rat, and am not sorry for being healthy, which all medical people are annoyed by that for some reason, like I'm trying to put them out of business.

As with all things in my life, "Less is more." I think this is a great idea, and they'll do great with it over time. The basic service would be great for those out in rural areas, yes, there are people out here.

***Everyone should have a thermometer to take their own temperature, and some other basics, and I would think people would have learned something about being a little more responsible for their own health during COVID!
