EP 083: Who Drives Your Health & Health Care
I was struck recently by a grocery store, pharmacy chain, requesting permission to enroll my patient into their "Diabetic Management Plan" I was startled by the changes that have occurred in medicine where patients and physicians have allowed their relationship to deteriorate to a level where managed care companies, pharmacies and grocery stores are now offering to "manage" major diseases. Under the guise of education, cost savings, and clinical guidance, multiple corporate entities are encroaching on the doctor patient relationship. Moreover, Lt Col Story and I discuss how personal choices for health, if ignored, lead to more "cookie cutter" solutions rather than the individualized care people deserve. We look forward to hearing back from you on the content in this episode.
