She is a younger doctor, and in it for the big bucks as much as anything else.

I like the older doctors better.

I've been noticing that there is a lot of working people in this country with hernias that they can't get fixed because of how this system is now.

That is it in part.

But doctors have sure gotten greedy themselves. That doctor that confirmed my hernia billed Medicare $470.00 for just spending ten minutes with me.

That's bullshit. They may work less, but they sure will charge more to make up the difference.

That's a shame if that is indeed a trend in the medical community!

I work as a speech therapist in public schools, and I wish I could quit sometimes due to the ridiculous amount of paperwork and a caseload that is big enough to be unmanageable. I work part-time after school at the local hospital, and it is actually far less obnoxious.

A fine orthopeadic surgeon in my area gave up her practice not long ago because of the stupid amount of paperwork and increased hassle of getting insurance companies to pay their bills in a timely manner. Our community will miss her. She was a whiz at fixing up hand injuries in particular. She fixed mine and it has worked as she promised ever since.

I cannot understand people's assertion that this country's healthcare system is the best in the World. From my experience, it is anything but.
