    Lucy, much appreciated comment, but from patient viewpoint left thinking money making medical machine continues remorselessly on . . . Whatever happened to GP Association goal/values they articulated on setting up? Please explore more on Medicare’s role in pressuring small Practices?

    Fee for service means that if you don’t do a lot of “service” – you don’t get a lot of fee. That’s why proceduralists make a lot of money – they do a lot of “servicing”.
    Meanwhile – the art of the narrative is buried in the fiscal requirements of providing community care. To take time to ask questions and listen to answers is not financially viable.
    The only way that you can deliver the sort of care I’m interested in is if you are a salaried doctor, only see wealthy patients or have a philanthropic supporter.
    Please – tell me I’m wrong.
