Where have all the Doctors Gone?

– I received a magazine with a story by this title and I wanted to see if I could find it on-line so I could Blog about it and provide a reference.   Imagine my surprise when a long list of stories with this name came up.

– This should be a wake up call to anyone that the takeover of the medical industry by large health care corporations in the U.S. – is not in the best interests of the people.

– Primary Care Physicians are disappearing fast from the American scene because of the amount of time and aggravation they have to endure justifying their decisions to insurance companies and healthcare management.

– Let me say it simply:  Health care should be about making people well, not about corporate profits.   We’ve gone very badly off the tracks in this country on this issue.

– Here’s a list of stories I came up with by Googling, “Where have all the doctors gone

= = = = = = = = = = = = =

Boston Globe: 

New York Times: 

Columbia Journalism Review 

Physician’s News Digest: 

San Francisco Business Times: 

– And the story I originally went looking for by that same title, in the AARP Magazine, apparently hasn’t been released onto the web yet, so I never found it.

– At least one of the stories referenced here is from the NY Times and they insist that folks have an ID and a PW in order to read their stuff. You can get these for free just by signing up. However, a friend of mine suggests the website bugmenot.com :arrow: as an alternative to having to do these annoying sign ups. Check it out. Thx Bruce S. for the tip.
