Talk To A Doctor
Are you ever nervous, impatient or a little frightened when you talk to a doctor in his office?
Do you ever feel like you’re rushed when you talk to a doctor, possibly forgetting some of your own questions?
It’s true that visits to a doctor’s office often result in moments where we ask ourselves if a doctor “heard” what you said, or if the doctor really listened. The cold reality is that an appointment to talk to a doctor often leads nowhere for a patient, aside from a sense of frustration and potential sadness. The real question is “why” does this happen so frequently or, even more importantly, “why” this is allowed to happen at all?
The simple reality of the situation is that doctors, the people who are meant to “do no harm,” are under an increasingly tremendous amount of pressure to see patient after patient each day. Both waiting rooms and examination rooms serve as cattle holding pens, “comfortably” maintaining the human stock that a doctor desperately needs to cover for the high overhead and low reimbursement fees. It’s a bureaucracy built on the expense of actually doing what they love.
The system of high debt load, massive expense to do business and the realities of insurance reimbursement develop a medical frontier where having a chance to talk to a doctor for more than a few seconds is a dream.
MD247 has a way to solve this with the use of telemedicine, but the idea of expense being the only problem everyone encounters when they try to talk to a doctor is ridiculous. Be sure to follow our series on this topic.
