Tell Us What You Really Think!

I searched for information on the Doctors Visit to Capitol Hill this week and found very little coverage.  Here is one article that I found in the Las Vegas Review-Journal.com  MILLION MED MARCH: Doctors warn of trouble

Physicians Speak Out, some of the quotes from the article:

“The whole profession is now in the hands of bureaucratic bastards. We can no longer give the treatment we want. We have to ask some bureaucratic bastard if it’s OK. It’s insane.”

DR. RAVEENDRA SURYADEVARA
psychiatrist, Las Vegas

“If your child’s life depended on an emerging technology … should they die if that new treatment hadn’t yet made it into the policy and procedures manual? Doctors are experienced and capable of making these difficult decisions. Bureaucrats and bookkeepers are not.”

DR. BLAKE MOORE
general surgeon, Columbia, S.C.

“We now have one insurance administrator per two physicians” in the United States.

DR. PATRICK ABUZENI
physician, Coral Gables, Fla.

“We need to move to a model where each patient owns their insurance, so that it’s always with them when they move or change jobs.”
DR. RICHARD ARMSTRONG
general surgeon, Newberry, Mich.
