More on doctors getting a life

Toni Brayer: “Young physicians do not want to deal with office employees or running a business. They expect a full schedule of patients to be there and an office administrator to deal with other business aspects like contracting with insurers, collecting payments and worrying about Medicare hassles.

The problem is that primary care practice and even some specialty practices have not been set up this way.”

Practices are going to be forced to change to have any success recruiting the new-generation lifestyle physicians. I have no doubt that it will happen, despite the resistance the retiring doctors are putting up.
