Review of Brainerd, Minnesota

No work
Star Rating - 12/5/2011
Small town. Everyone knows everyone else's business. No work. Located in Crow Wing County and has highest unemployment rate in the state. Poor healthcare. Essentia Health is a catholic healthcare system that sees no need to provide reproductive services such as coverage of birth control, vasectomy, or tubal ligation as part of its benefit package. Doctors come here for the outdoor lifestyle but lack dedication to their work. Clinics often close for snow days. The doctors that are here are not very good- husband and son misdiagnosed on three occasions. Very misogynist atmosphere- professional women (doctors and nurses) tend to leave as soon as their contracts are up. Pay for women is not on par with male counterparts-even at the professional level. Hate it here, can't sell the house in order to relocate- if you know what the term Mans Land means that pretty much sums it up.
