Should I leave, a lot of my patients are going to be forlorn (they will be offered slots with the other docs but I am the only female MD in the practice and certain of my patients are there because of that). And the practice has had trouble recruiting other physicians for a myriad of reasons.

Um, dare I point out that it is an American tradition for patients to follow the doctor they like when a physician leaves a practice? Dare I suggest that you might have the start of a respectable practice the day you hang out your own shingle?

If the software is truly as wretched as you describe, perhaps it makes sense to find out how bad it would be to assume the overhead of running your own practice. At least then you could make rational decisions on what software to use.
