AMA we already have a shortage here in Texas yet it doesn't seem to have tranlated to the waiting rooms which are usually near empty. I know this is my own personal experience but I do think there is a lot of hyperbole surounding this issue. I simply do not believe that adding more patients is going to overload our system, not in Fl nor nationally...

It will probabably contribute to the closing of many practices of the better docs, at least the ones with the best general reputation. (By closing, I mean limiting the practice to existing patients). This will make it more difficult to get the best treatment, in my opinion. I've been trying to establish myself as a patient with some of the better specialists as a protection so they'll be there if I need them.
A retired doc/surgeon we know was talking about how disgusted he's getting with the med system. He recently retired. He said that the government has been forcing the med schools to pass about anyone on the premise that if they're smart enough to get into medical school, they shouldn't be failed. What a rotten extension of the "Johnny shouldn't have his widdle feelings hurt, so we'll just pass him and move him along.'
