New York Times: Doctors, Revolt!
Young, ambitious, idealistic doctors are telling us: “Hell no.”
They will not be forced to see 25-30 patients per day. 15 minutes per patient appointment. “Treat ’em and street ’em.” Sick care, instead of proper preventative care.
These young doctors, in their late 20’s and early 30’s, are leading a change in our healthcare system. A change that is realistic and achievable today, without massive healthcare policy reform. Without depending on insurance companies and large healthcare systems.
A New York Times Opinion piece this weekend, written by a young doctor in residency training, calls for a “return to the fundamentals of doctoring – listening to know the patient behind the symptoms.”
And that “doctors of conscience” have to “resist the industrialization of their profession.”
We completely agree. And we’re doing something about it right now. Come join us.
