    I hand out 150 pages of self help info at least once to every patient. Not one has ever asked me to print it off again ’cause they lost or misplaced it. Bottom line: Patients will continue to ignore our advice, continue to get sick while we docs are blamed for it. There is no patient accountability.
    Since there isn’t. Primary care is the worse specialty anyone can chose to go into. Anyone who tells students it’s great they should burn in Hades. Yes DPC can help but go into the wrong area with a bad payer mix (ie. too many poor at the government teat) and you’ll go bankrupt like the private practices did before you.
