Well, of course it is only my humble opinion, but this is the way medicine should be practiced. Do you remember the movie Robin Williams played in; Patch Adams? Boy he really broke the mold when it come to bedside manners, and he knew his stuff. In many ways this is how I compare Dr.Piat to many of the stuffed shirts with the various degrees so proudly displayed for all to see. That's all they have; a degree. My first experience with Dr. Piat was when I went in for a DOT physicle. I walked in to a very quaint and modest setting, a big lazy looking cat on the table behind the counter, and a very laid back (literally) man squeaking his way through a musical scale while NPR played in the background. No dry secretary to tell you to sign in and have a seat from behind the security of her rolling glass wall that apparently keeps her from seeing you when you first get there. I told him what I needed and he asked me to fill out a general informational sheet and some medical background questions. In the exam room he went about his duties in a very professional but yet relaxed manner. Not at all rushed, as if I was the only patient he had to see...well I was at the time. We talked politics, religion, stock market, and even discussed my weight problem. As we were engaged in deep conversation, the waiting room door opened, and he shouted down the hall, "have a seat, I'll be right with you", and right back to the importance of checking out the five year performance of a particular stock. Folks, this is what you'll get, take it or leave it. This is MY doctor and I would and do trust him with my life and that of my family

My little family is, unfortunately, in the growing number of American families who are (for the most part) without health insurance - because my husband's employer did away with the costly benefits and I've chosen to be a full-time mother, only our daughter is covered. Therefore, we don't visit a doctor at all unless we are REALLY sick.

For illnesses that require medical attention, we most often visit Dr. Robert Piat at the Horsepasture Walk-In Clinic. Insurance isn't accepted here; office visits are a flat $40 cash. A free clinic is offered from 6 AM - 8 AM, and Dr. Piat is wonderful about providing samples and prescriptions for generic medications for his patients.

While not exactly orthodox in appearance with shaggy hair and an earring, Dr. Piat is a friendly and knowledgeable doctor, and we feel fortunate to have his practice in our little community.

PROS: Free clinic; affordable health care; knowledgeable physician.
CONS: Small, somewhat dinky office.
