Rural Wisconsin doctor seeking ways to manage use of opioids

In this Nov. 7, 2019 photo, Michael Kruchten a patient of Dr. Angela Gatzke-Plamann is seen at the Necedah Family Medical Center in Necedah, Wis. Gatzke-Plamann says, "There isn't another me just down the road. I'm the only one here." "So if I can fulfill that need, then I should do that. And I don't think that's something that urban or suburban physicians have to deal with." (Coburn Dukehart/Wisconsin Watch via AP)
