Why You Gave Up Your Practice…
The strain on independent physicians is not being caused solely from health care reform. There are many other factors in play.
Jordan Grumet, M.D. recently had this to say about the doctor-patient relationship:

I admit that I can never know exactly what my patients are feeling, I haven’t walked a day in their shoes. On the other hand, I have years of experience treating just the sort of complaints they come to my door seeking help with.
There are days when I fervently wish they would let me use this experience to help them”.
