Doctors Threaten to Quit over Health Care Law

Ad Feedback

Doctors almost universally believe medicine in America is heading in the wrong direction - and most blame the government for it.

The Doctor Patient Medical Association survey found that nine out of 10 say they think the medical system is on the wrong track.

"I feel sorry for those who are valiantly trying to practice good medicine in such a dysfunctional system," one Alaskan doctor said.

"I have been in practice for 28 years and medicine is now the worst for doctors it has ever been," a Texas orthopedist said.

Eighty-three percent have considered quitting because of the president's new health care law. And 72 percent say the Obamacare individual mandate will not result in better access to health care.

"Medicine is no longer about treating and taking care of patients. I spend more time telling patients about additional paperwork they need to fill out," one Missouri respondent lamented.
Finally, 95 percent say medicine is becoming too controlled by large corporations.

"When the airlines were taken over by business instead of being run by pilots, the industry went to hell," a general surgeon in North Carolina wrote. "Same thing has happened to healthcare. Doctors used to run hospitals and their practices. Now they are 'providers.'"
