A walk-in clinic doctor is taking heat for not notifying patients of his retirement. His justification:

Fegley, who decided to retire the first week of November, said he didn’Â’t think he should be expected to notify all his patients because he does not consider himself a primary care doctor. His patients “all have primary care doctors,” he said. “I’m just there when their doctors are unavailable.”

Just a reflection of how many people use such walk-in clinics for primary care.
