I was an intern in 2004, and even though we did a lot of other things aside from bedside patient care, this is insane!! 👇

It doesn’t matter how much you pay someone if the job is, untimately, soul-sucking. They’ll burn out and/or reduce their hours (= reason for pay gap?). Doctors want to care for patients. We must stop forcing them into meaningless data entry positions. Click. Click. Click.

It’s def. not either/or. In fact, maybe if existing PCPs were not spending most of their day doing administrative crap, they’d practice longer AND students would be more likely to choose primary care! I don’t have a solution to aging yet.

Sure. Having more inefficient doctors (training more & keeping existing practicing longer) would help to some degree. But, which is a bigger problem & easier to fix?

Perhaps there is not an actual doctor shortage, but a rather a shortage of doctors time providing actual care?

Our honorable Secretary, , “That's how I think; I complain for sport. I find it to be fun. I'm like the old man on his porch yelling at kids to get off his lawn." 🤣 Really, how else can you move an organization of physicians forward?

Historically, avg PCP panel sizes were much much smaller until about 1980. There actually is some good literature on this as well. Most estimates are that 1200 patients max to do all of their necessary care.

😢 I cannot fathom only having 12 minutes with a patient. In my DPC practice, even 30-45 min is often not enough to sort out complex problems or difficult situations. Would we ever expect a surgeon to do a case in 1/4 of the necessary time?

And watching PCPs hearts break is an all too common occurrence. We can and must rise up against a system that undervalues us and our sacred relationships with patients.

We’re on it. We’ve helped hundreds of PCPs restore their profession so they can exclusively focus on their patients again.

Aha moment? "When I ... discovered direct primary care. That conversation lit a fire in me and then threw gasoline on it," says Dr. Luke Van Kirk with Command Family Medicine.
