Getting Better Health Care – The private practice physician’s perspective on quality health care
This week, we continue our discussion with Dr. Jane Orient, practicing internist and member of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS). Dr. Orient explains the benefits of our fee-for-service, private practice medical system and the potential downside to “Obamacare” and salaried medical systems. She offers practical advice from the practicing physician perspective on how to strengthen our health care system by strengthening the physician-patient relationship. Bottom line: doctors should work directly for their patients, not for 3rd party insurance or government systems.
