Will doctor’s dissatisfaction with their carriers affect you?

I wonder how this article might impact care and the relationship everyone has with their doctor or the new doctor they were just assigned when they entered the hospital?


Cbs news shared this view that many doctors might have made the 1 million dollar mistake of becoming a doctor.  One has to wonder if a disappointed or unhappy doctor is really the best doctor?

If you think doctors are rich, and have it made, this article might be surprising to many.  I think it is a must read since we all will need to rely on doctors and the health care system for the care of those we love, our parents and ourselves one day.

$1 Million mistake – becoming a doctor!


Questions to ask yourself.

An interesting line of questions might be what can patients and insurance companies do to make medicine more enjoyable for the doctors who study 10 -15 years to become doctors? Recall most people spend 4 yrs in college a few years as apprentices or less to become professionals.

Is it fair for doctors to get paid what they do?  Is it fair that many professional organizations have great unions and fantastic retirement benefits guaranteed by large institutions but doctors often have no safety net?  How might that affect the next generation of people who choose to become doctors?

While it is exciting in some ways that the brain drain and getting foreign nationals to migrate to fill doctors spots largely for citizenship is a good way to coerce foreign nationals to be doctors are there any possible language and cultural issues that might arise that can affect patient care as that trend continues?
