Dear Senator/Representative ____________,
Please accept my message in the spirit in which it is being sent — one of hope and constructive criticism with the goal of making America better.
I am sending this email of concern to ask for improved Congressional investigation and oversight of the FDA approval processes for foods, drugs, and medical devices. Having recently read about Dr. Bob Christensen’s unfortunate medical device experience with the FDA — after 40+ years of commercial and patient success — I am outraged that such events can still occur to entrepreneurs in America. Small business is the backbone of America, and innovation is the backbone of small business. If the FDA is allowed to stifle small medical entrepreneurs like Dr. Christensen, out of personal and jealous motives, what will the cost be to America? The FDA does many good things overall, but there is a serious need for approval process reform.
Dr. Christensen has been hailed as one of America’s most brilliant innovators by the Mayo Clinic, and you can read more about him and his work at www.drbobchristensen.com.
Your help is appreciated.
Thanks to all who send this message to Congress. If enough voices are heard, Congress MUST take action.
Dr. Bob Christensen
