This is disturbing. As a society needing to control our health care costs, we continue to place more emphasis & money on procedures rather than time. This is one of the reasons so few students choose primary care and especially Geriatric Medicine as a specialty. I wonder as the Baby Boomer age if we will finally start to have the respect for what we do in Geriatric Medicine. As a Geriatric physician and educator, I can only hope. Quality of care and quality of life have to start to count for something.
