Letter to the Editor


I always find Dr. Edwin Leap's articles to be refreshing, humorous, and seasoned with truth and compassion. The article “D/C: A Little More of the God's Honest Truth” was spot on and professional. (EMN 2019;41[3]:21; Dr. Leap's realistic approach to emergency medicine is what we need in this day and age. I would feel comfortable with him looking after me or any member of my family, and I know we would receive proper care and the proper amount of compassion and straight-shooting.

I saw some negative comments regarding this article on social media. Many of these people are notorious for purposefully trying to jeopardize careers of people they disagree with. Sad that those who claim tolerance tend to be the most intolerant.
