Poll: “Doctor, would you rather your Patient JUST GO to a specialist vs. bother you with the issue?”

A Physician recently wrote on LinkedIn …

“When you visit google.com, there’s a big free text box encouraging you to use their core feature, search. For one of the world’s largest companies, it’s a refreshingly simple almost blank white page. That’s because they know what role they play in the world. That page is the entry point to organizing the world’s information. Search is a tool to solve a problem, just as doctors are tools to solve problems. What is the entry point into healthcare? If you ask healthcare folks, it’s “call up and make an appointment.” In other words, give a local PCP $200 and they may or may not help you. There’s a good chance, due to their busy schedule, they’ll just refer you to a specialist because PCPs just don’t have the time to deal with you.” ~J.P.,  MD; March 20, 2018
