Reconnecting the patient-physician relationship

Primary care, like osteopathic family medicine with OMM, is an amazing and diverse specialty. It takes time to listen, see and palpate a patient to help treat disease and maintain optimal health. The government, insurance industry, malpractice attorneys and hospitals have made this ideal practice impossible and nearly extinct. More than half of a DOs and their staffs time is taken up with government compliance measures and insurance red tape. The primary answer is reconnecting the patient-physician relationship without third parties in a direct primary care DPC model.
