My thoughts on Stark Laws, Anti-Kickbacks, & Hospital Ownership Bans. 10/22/23 Wow. It’s all about control. Designating what physicians can/cannot do in terms of business. An attempt to control ethical decision making by some of THE MOST ETHICAL PROFESSIONALS ALIVE. I think puppeteering policy shapers forgot – or perhaps never actually understood/realized – what it … More What if PHYSICIANS led the future of healthcare?

This entry is inspired by Dr. Adam Harrison’s social media posts today, 11/18/22. Bullying. Belittling. Making one feel worthless, unvalued, not enough. Constantly berating & focusing on deficits rather than helping to improve & recognizing what’s done well PRIOR to pointing out potential areas needing improvement. Being made to feel as if anything & everything … More Courage to Change: Become an Anti-Bully
10/2/22 I’ve been a physician for 26 years. I graduated medical school in 1996. I’ve lived through and witnessed physicians go from “respected full of autonomy leaders” to discouraged “data entry clerk providers”, brainwashed into a purposeful learned helplessness – intentionally created by healthcare’s profit hungry corporate cartel. Once respected, now belittled. Once autonomous, now … More My EntreMD Story

In regards to the court’s ruling on 6/24/2022, re: overturning Roe vs Wade, I dissent. ALL MEDICAL DECISIONS are personal & private & no one outside of the direct patient:physician relationship should have any say on ANY MEDICAL DECISIONS. Attempting to insert one’s personal views, beliefs, politics, religions, thoughts, conclusions is unethical, harmful, & will … More I Dissent
I recently responded to a post in a group re: how pediatricians are “undervalued/underpaid”. The thing is, it’s not just pediatricians, or primary care – but ALL PHYSICIANS. The rise of corporatized for profit “healthcare” has affected all specialties – especially primary care and pediatrics. The way “reimbursement” works with insurance-based fee for service/RVUs even … More Activate. USE YOUR VOICE.
