Young Doctors Disgruntled, Determined

Joe Cantlupe, for HealthLeaders Media, April 26, 2012

In the meantime, the physicians are going to meet with insurers and discuss reimbursements, Valenti adds. "We are going to the pull out our data and show we're doing as good as we can, and we do a great job with patients," he adds.

If the group doesn't make headway to improve its financial situation, "we're going to look at the administrative cost of joining a group that has better contracts than we do. I don't know what else to do,"

 

Valenti is a young doctor, but the profession has gotten him older.

 

"There was a time I felt a little bit sad and angry," Valenti says, "And now I feel determined."

I find it very odd that doctors in knee-jerk fashion would blame health reform for their woes. Is it the fact that 30 million more patients will now be able to pay them? Were they comfortable in an American where 1/6th was uninsured and couldn't get to a doctor? The doctors' reaction against health reform tells me they are either highly misinformed or in it for themselves, not the patients.

Jay, do you know this guy? It is a sad story about a practice that is over their head. Hard to imagine why they can't make a decent living. A. J.
