The Fate of Medicine Today
By Rick Redalen, M.D.
It is becoming harder and harder to find a primary care physician to care for you. These physicians have been called general practitioners, family practitioners, and medical practitioners. All of these specialists are generalists. They care for the whole patient. In spite of taking responsibility for the care of the whole patient, they are among the lowest paid of all specialties in medicine. Why is this?
For as long as I can remember there have been disagreements among physicians resulting in “turf” wars. It is easy to see why this occurs but difficult to understand.
