    I agree that it is much harder for the indigent to find patient-centered care. Fortunately, in my area, Grand Rapids, MI, there is fair access to primary care through clinics funded by the local Catholic Hospital and by several funded by local charities, including our United Way. Although the situation is far from perfect here, it seems that our community has taken the responsibility to provide services to those in need.
