Out of Time

I am a physician.

I need more time.

I need more time to listen to my patients.

I need more time to perform a proper exam.

I need more time to collect my thoughts.

I need more time to document.

I need time to care for my family.

I need time to recharge.

I need time to eat healthy and exercise.

I need time to unwind.

I am a physician who is out of time.

Jaclyn S. Nadler, MD, MBA, FACP is a practicing internal medicine physician in Southwest FL. She received her medical degree from the University of Miami and undergraduate (BSN) and graduate (MSN/ARNP) training from the University of Florida in Gainesville. She attended residency at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, NC and completed her MBA degree with a concentration in medical management from UMass, Amherst. Dr. Nadler recently joined the Direct Primary Care/DPC movement when she became disillusioned with the current state of healthcare including physician abuse, corporate medicine’s focus on quantity of care over quality and the loss of physician autonomy. She started her own DPC clinic, CoastalMED DPC in January 2019 where she can practice medicine on her own terms and provide her patients with the time and superior care they have grown the expect. She is passionate about physicians regaining their rightful place at the helm of healthcare and physicians reverting back to independent practice and regaining autonomy. She is a member of the Florida Medical Association and Direct Primary Care Alliance, she is a Fellow in the American College of Physicians and received her certification as a physician executive (CPE) through the American Association of Physician Leaders.

    I encountered a patient the other day who thought that FP’s “have time”. She was excusing the specialist not explaining his diagnosis (that I had to), apparently because he didn’t have it. I wonder where she thinks it comes from, and can I get some from there.

    I thought that this was part of the draw for doing DPC, more time for your patients and more time/control for you?

      This was meant to be general, I was reflecting on my employed FFS day. I now have the luxury of time with DPC. Thanks for your thoughts, I may need to write a new one specifically about the time DPC offers me 💕

    Pretty much says it all. I’m in the worst shape of my life. The VAs answer to my 12 hour days was to take more time for myself.
