Dr. Craig Wax writes AOA Pres. Bob Juhasz, DO
Thank you for having me at the AOA advocacy meeting in Phoenix AZ. The lectures and workshops were informative and interactive. More importantly, thank you for your personal meeting with me on adaptive leadership and listening to the information to improve the AOA that I bring from independent physicians and all their contacts:
1. AOA needs to listen to all DOs in all practice specialties and practice styles from solo to health system leader. All have both core values and needs, but each has unique issues that the AOA needs to know, value and act on.

I just received your email blast about the SGR.
There are three fixes for SGR that come to mind that would immediately solve this never ending recurring problem for physicians.
1- eliminate the SGR entirely
2- advocate that all physicians opt out of Medicare
3- immediately freeze the physician fee schedule where it is AND allow physicians to balance bill patients for anything they want above it.

Privacy is a big problem getting bigger every day where its technology basically used against the consumer in the form of their data. With my background of both sales and developing, I have two thought processes going all the time if you will, the geek side visualizes and the sales side visualizes how they will market and potentially deceive the public with a lot of it to get folks on board so they can collect more data.
