OP/ED: Where did my doctor go?

Where did my doctor go?

Posted by on July 31, 2013

Dr. Weeks’ Comment: Over the years, I have helped many doctors to leave third-party contracts to create a concierge practice where they are paid directly by their patients. Why would a doctor willingly forgo the benefit of indiscriminate, uncritical reimbursement from the seemingly infinite cash cow which has been third-party payers and rely instead upon the actual patient for income?  Quite simply because it works better for all parties involved.
