Here is what Obamacare will do to our access to medicine. Physicians are migrating more and more to "concierge" business models to
avoid the price controls imposed by the interference by government fiat. I had to change doctors last year for that very reason.
Here is a quote from my former internist's letter to his patients:
"On the other hand, working as an internist involves so much paperwork and phone calls for drugs, tests, referrals, home health care, visiting
nurse services, etc. that I now spend more time each week with paperwork and these phone calls than I do on direct patient care, which is
my first love. The situation has gotten progressively worse as HMOs and Medicare issue more and more denial of services and products,
which demand even more paperwork, interventions, and appeals on my part."
