Well hopefully the harmonization of the match process between M.D.s and D.O.s in 2015 will help. There's no reason to have a "doctor shortage" and be importing MDs from abroad with questionable training when we have highly trained D.O.s from US schools who take the same boards as MDs anyway.
That said, getting the crap sued out of you for a hangnail is not a lot of fun, nor is begging Medicare and Medicaid for reimbursement.
Attorneys however, do not have to do any of these things, and are much less regulated than doctors. And they get paid much more by the government for their services.
Time for some serious tort reform.
(Translation: government attorneys get paid a pittance compared to attorneys in private practice and in many cases work much harder. In addition, "tort reform" would have no impact on government attorneys. However, it will ensure that if you get hit by a bus, you'll have a much smaller selection of attorneys willing to take your case. And if you aren't permanently disfigured and unable to work ever work again at your high-paying job, you'll probably find zero lawyers to take your case).
The CVS clinics are great. I've gone twice in the last year when I got a nasty earache on a Sunday and had what I thought might be strep throat last Christmas Eve. No waiting either time, they took my insurance (I pay my own), and entered everything on my electronic chart. Got meds for the earache, didn't need them for the throat since itcwasn't steep. My own doctor saw the visits on my chart and said she thought the clinics
Are great. I would surely have gone to the ER for one or both ailments but I didn'tvhave to. I also got my flu shot there this year. Best of all, they are a far more pleasant experience than any ER.
