Hello, Obamacare !
I had my doctor's appointment today. Anti-cholesterol drugs are doing their job. My doctor discussed the effects of Obamacare and is pessimistic about the future of medicine. He noted the consolidation of hospitals and stated that doctors are being forced out of private practice. He said that he didn't know where he would be in a year. My doctor related that physicians were required to pay $15,000 for a "module" to complete electronic records. He also stated that "everything" about the patient goes to computer data bases.
