Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

Here's the email I talked about on the air today. I hope this encourages you.

Good Morning Chris,
My husband's name is Dan and he’s the one who keeps you informed about the temperature in Alaska sense you mentioned 'except in Alaska' on your show. We look forward to listening to your show together each morning, I think he has more fun listening to you than almost any other part of our day. I wanted to tell you a bit about this extraordinary man. He’s a devout man of God and a strong leader with a sense of humor seemingly like yours.

He is 6'4' and a not so typical... typical Alaskan. He grew up in the south and shows hospitality to whomever he meets. His boyhood dream was to come to Alaska. Why do I tell you this today, well, in this political timeline I wanted to share with you his idea of healthcare reform.

You see My husband is a PA, a physician’s assistant, and he has worked in some of the most remote communities in Alaska, some only accessible by bush planes, then met by snow machines to take him to a small one room cabin to stay for a few weeks to help the sick, and of course plant seeds for the Lord. You can imagine the stories he tells with having such a rich sense of humor.

After the past 20 years of being discouraged by the current healthcare system (and a lot of prayer) the Lord knew Dan’s heart and led us to open our own walk in clinic this year. I can’t even begin to describe how God had such a hand in each aspect of this clinic.

We decided to sell our house and build the clinic (which we built our selves) without going into debt so that we could offer truly affordable healthcare. We charge $65.00 for most visits, and make payment arrangements for those who cannot afford to pay, and have seen many people without charging at all. My Husband does not turn people away. He spends as much time as he can with each patient to make sure they are getting the best care he can possibly give. I joke that he spends too much time. We are open from 2 pm to 9:30 pm as a convenience for working families. Except on Wednesdays and Sundays for church). He makes follow up calls on a daily basis and yes, he even makes house calls.

There are Bibles in our waiting room and if you show an interest we are not afraid to invite you to services and to let you know how God has blessed us. After all that is what we are supposed to do. When its time to go home we forward our phones so that we can be available at any time. If you ask, Dan’s all too happy to joke that at 8:00 in the morning his receptionist answers the phone in her bathrobe, making eggs. You see it is me on the other end of the line, we are even more blessed to be able to work together. Dan amazes me daily with his compassion and dedication to helping each and every person. He truly is a servant trying to make a difference.

I don’t know what’s going to happen with this election or health care in the future, as for us we are implementing God’s brand of health care reform right here. And we give all the glory to Him. If you are ever in Soldotna (Sol-Dot-Na) Alaska make sure to look us up.

I have attached a picture of Dan in front of the clinic so that you can see who’s filling you in on the weather here in Alaska and hopefully it will return the smile that you will give us today.

Thank you,
Mrs. Dan Nyitrai

Mrs. Nyitrai,

Would you or Dan mind taking the time to tell us exactly what a P.A. is and isn't allowed to do when providing health care? And whether this is something special about Alaska law, or is true nationally?

I have a friend who is an LPN, very gifted at diagnosis, and would dearly love to be running a health clinic in our rural area, but until now I thought it wasn't even a possibility.

Thanks for any light you can shed on this.

Now there is a health care plan we can all get behind. To know that there is someone out there that makes a differance with his God given talents I look up to and respect him. Thank You

That is such a great letter. Thanks for sharing it with us, Chris! Dan sounds like a great guy and that God's hand is truly in their lives, marriage, and ministry.
