I don't really see the problem here. If anything, I think we should be shifting away from MDs faster.

I think I agree with this for probably 90% of the visits Americans make to the doctor. That represents either a maintenance visit or a condition the patient is far more familiar with than the doctor (unless your doctor happens to be a fellow sufferer), or something so minor as to be better treated with staying home and sipping a cup of hot tea instead of dragging yourself out the door, into traffic to get to the doctor's office.

My best beer buddy is an MD so a lot of my perspective comes from listening to him talk. He does emergency room work and prefers it that way because the odds of him seeing a patient that actually needs his expertise are higher. More money in the right office practice but GAWD how boring would that be?
