Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
More and more in today's medical environment the physician is being treated like a worker bee and is stripped of any power to impact the way her office is being run, the prices set for her services or how her schedule is set.
This sad trend is one of the major reasons that the applications have fallen by over 600% in the last decade. Soon there won't be enough applicants to fill the available positions in Medical Schools and, soon afterward, we will start to run out of qualified doctors.
I no longer suggest to my children or young patients that they should become doctors. The rewards for decades of schooling and sacrifice are quickly disappearing.
