This is SO long overdue! I can't believe how long Kaiser and Sutter procrastinated on this. I stopped going for in-person appointments at Sutter /PAMF a year ago last March after having to wade through an unmasked crowd of workers and patients to get in a door. Once there, I asked my doctor if I should come back for an in-person follow-up appointment and he said HE wouldn't risk it.
