16 Top New York Docs Convene to Discuss Healthcare Reform…Here’s Their Take on It
Sixteen highly regarded physicians representing many fields -cardiology, oncology, general surgery, internal medicine, and others, assembled at the Grand Hyatt in New York City to discuss the impact of the currently proposed health bills on their patients. As reported by Betsy McCaughey of www.defendyourhealthcare.us, here are the main concerns addressed by these physicians:
- Most are expecting more mandated guidelines for treatment. The general consensus is that guidelines dumb down treatment; they are always for average care and NO patient is average, their situations are always unique.
- Doctors are getting blamed now for keeping people alive too long. How can they honor the Hippocratic Oath and live in the new system that is sure to ration care? “We’re the bad guys. We’re responsible for keeping people alive to 85. So we’re going to try to change healthcare because people are living too long? It just doesn’t make sense.”
- Healthcare reform will be a gigantic invasion of privacy into the medical conditions of all Americans.
- Government is in the process of duplicating everything that managed care did for the last 15 years that was reviled by everybody and which we fought very hard to overcome.
