Friday Funny: MIPS

The above is from a DPC doc:

I am so glad I am out of the “system”. This was on a 9-year old I sent to a specialist.

I know a ton of 9-year olds who smoke and drank and only get picked up by these screens done by specialists.

This is why the system with its bogus metrics continue to be such bullshit.

      Bullshit my a$$! I was getting letters back from specialty docs with so much shit in them like shown above it was hard to find the “legitimate” recommendations in the letter! I remember the good old days of a one or two page letter that gave me all the info I needed to help deal with the situation.
