Denigrating Medicine: ObamaCare Turns Physicians into Assembly Line Workers
Posted in the Columbus Forum
#1 May 21, 2013
Once free to be creative and innovative in their own practices, doctors are becoming more like assembly line workers, constrained by rules and regulations aimed to systemize their craft. ObamaCare has put the medical professions already bad trajectory on a worse path. Its no surprise that early retirement is starting to look more attractive.
Many of my generational peers in medicine have gone part-time, taken early retirement or quit practice and gone to work for hospitals or as corporate consultants.
Some are starting cash-only concierge medical practices that accept no Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance. As old-school independent-thinking doctors leave, they are replaced by protocol-followers.
Medicine, in just one generation, is transforming from a glorious profession into just another rote occupation. This affects us all because we will all be patients someday.
