Herbal medicine is leading the health conscious way with positive results against the greed of the pharmacutical, side effect, ruin your health and life..... by AMA doctors.

Medford has the finest medical coverage between Portland and San Francisco, and yes, there are dozens of PC Physicans that accept Medicare...the only problem is...it may take three months to see one, because half of California has moved here recently.

We need to look out for the physicians and providers. Sign up for my FREE 5 part mini-course on Medicare Made Easy at http://www.medicare-plans.net
