The voice of experience (another comment on the story):Here's another angle to the Obamacare disaster for seniors and others. My pain management doctor, an eminent southern CA anesthesiologist with an impeccable educational background and many years of experience, moved on to establish his own private practice with another physician after the pain management organization he was working from tripled his patient load and provided no additional compensation. He indicated to me subsequently that it left him with so little time for each patient that he could not provide the appropriate care necessary to meet their individual needs. It was also a prescription for error in diagnosis and treatment. Heretofore and now, of course, he alots as much time as necessary to each of his patients. The organization he left replaced him with a physician who graduated from what is primarily a veterinary school in the Caribbean. [?!] Matriculation at this school requires less than half the scores on the MCATs than medical schools in the continental United States. Less than half its graduates achieve medical residency. The bottom line, and I do mean bottom line, is the organization can pay the new guy far less than the former physician, and patients receive substandard care. This is where Obamacare is headed. I daresay Obama won't be seeing the "new" guy for his pain management needs.
