This reader wants to go back to the “old way”:
I’m sorry, but when I chose my primary care doctor that is who I want on my team looking out for me, not someone I don’t know. As the hospitalists will be talking to the surgeon, my primary care doctor should be involved in my care. When they give the medications, maybe your primary care doctor would have done it in a different way. When someone is sick in a hospital, first of all, they do not want to deal with a doctor they don’t know. That’s why you pick one that you like.
