One of the greatest headaches for the local doctors to have to deal with is the vast amount of welfare recipients trying to obtain controlled substances. I accompanied someone to the ER 4 times in the last few months and the waiting room was filled every time with welfare folks bawling about how much pain they were in.
Who would want to deal with that on a regular basis?

Dewell is all about the money. He does not have to accept Medicaid because he is a private physician so he would take only the patients that had good insurance.

I'm glad to hear that. It's probably that he just prefers dealing with people that have good hygiene instead of people who stink and are always begging for some oxy's or hydro's.

The administration at ALICE DIED HOSPITAL.a non profit institution (joke that is) have consolidated most of the doctors that want to practice with them.
They have created a cadre of doctors under their directions..Think of the last time you called your personal doctor, did you actually see him? or a nurse practitioner? When you go for one thing, the people you see, suggest additional testing at the hospital of course, or refer you to another physician. This all cost more money, either insurance or personal or both. Hospitals in cohort with doctors are a business, and how they get away with and hide behind a non profit clause is beyond me SOME doctors will not put up with the controls the Alice Died Administration imposes on them and they get out,, I suspect Dr Dwell is one like that and I give him credit for his move.

Doctors want to be employed and insist upon it in order to relocate to Malone. The hospital would prefer to not employ them but has to work to recruit....or there would be no doctors for the community.

Dewell is one of the best around and if he doesnt take medicaid people should have ins, why depend on the state to pay for you r bills. Just makes me sick medicaid/ food stamps / drivers to rake folks to drs. when is this bs going to stop?

As long as a pres who believes in redistribution of wealth stays in office, it will continue and only get worse. Remember that in three weeks when you vote.Āssuming you do.

It's "THEIR elbow" and "THEIR jobs" moron. Go back to grade school and learn English. The stupidity of this town is truly amazing - especially with the rate of school taxes we pay.

This doctor leaving is just the start. With the way the hospital is being run it'll be a wonder if we have any doctors left around here. These new "hospitalist" are a joke. I want my OWN doctor, the one person with whom I've shared my physical body on a level of professionalism, to take care of me. Not some "for-hire" doctor who's doing it because he was hired. I mean, how can one person be up on everyone's ailments at once when their only affiliation with a patient is their impersonal visits to your room so they can charge you outlandish fees.
They might as well close Alice Hyde. How much do they actually do these days anyway? Not much. THey ship everyone to Burlington.
