Sunday House Call, #859, November 20, 2022: The lack of understanding of what family doctors need to run their practices is on full display from consultants and health-policy experts who have never run a practice let alone treated patients.

Hey! Health policy analysts and consultants, trying to fix the family doctor shortage works better if you take the time to speak to those of us who have decades of experience and expertise in running our practices instead of arrogantly assuming that your academic credentials provides you with insight.

You have had 30 years to fix things and yet nothing changes. But now, you have run out of runway. The public knows it and you are now reaping what you have sewn.

Your calls about:

  • Pneumonia vaccine
  • Prostate cancer screening
  • Feet becoming numb
  • Sedation options for colonoscopy procedures
  • Ablation therapy for atrial fibrillation
