I am getting tired of all the bitching and moaning, yet everyone still continues to bend over and get sodomized day in and day out by third parties, government regulations and even worse our own physician societies.
Words, words and more words and yet it only gets worse.
Our patients think we are crying wolf because what actions have we taken to prove we mean what we say?
If you do not act, just forget about it and be assimilated.
1- Opt out of all insurers. Don’t play their game.
2- Resign from the physician societies that have been screwing you.
3- Get a position in the societies and change them.
4- Start our own physician organizations and bring other docs fed up with the system over to ours. Strength in numbers only if walking the walk!!
5- Retire. I hear WalMart is hiring greeters again.
6- Run for political office and then DO NOT get altered by the system. Politicians think they are the system. Unless we fight back they will continue to think that way.
7- Treat every one of your patients like they were your family and get their support for any and all of the above that you have changed.
Other than that keep just sending emails and keep digging your own grave.
Nobody likes complainers. Our patients will not follow complainers, but they will follow and support leaders.
LEAD BY EXAMPLE, not by words or emails!
