The Physicians Foundation 2017 Patient Survey found that 95 percent of patients were somewhat or very satisfied with their overall relationship with their physician, and 80 percent said they had thought very little or not at all about changing physicians. Unfortunately, it also found that ONLY 11 percent of patients and 14 percent of physicians have all the time needed to provide the highest standards of care.
Now how do we fix this little bugaboo? Oh, I know, how about Direct Primary Care? Nah!! Let’s create more “initiatives” or “programs”. Yeah, that’ll do it.
