Small Town Doc Talks Healthcare with White House



Tim McKnight, MD, does not support the Affordable Care Act. But he does believe government has a role in healthcare delivery. The rural physician is both a product of successful federal healthcare policy, and an advocate for wellness—via a federally funded program he established in his rural Ohio town.

Not only does Dr. McKnight get that primary healthcare takes place outside of office visits, he understands what Doctor Patient Medical Assocaiton (www.doctorsandpatients.org) shares as a guiding principal, patient and doctor autonomy. The delicate balance of government, as in this case, responding to the needs of a specific community versus dictating mandates for the entire population. Medical care is best when medical professionals and patients are able to make decisions unfettered by restrictions, mandates, rationing or other interference by government, insurance or other third parties.

This guy gets it. Nutrition, and the willingness to think outside of the allopathic box are two of the keys to getting our healthcare system under control.
