I want my physician to take care of ME
For the second time in as many days, I read something that gets it so right, it almost ties my gut up in knots.
The Monger, MD, on Canada's Beleaguered Health Care System:
Because the System is designed to serve the collective goals of a mass of humanity, it cannot respond to individual goals appropriately. It is not designed to cater to individual goals, any more than the public transit system is designed to meet my personal commuting goals. But the only goals that matter to a patient--and the only goals that should matter to his physician--are personal goals.
Read it all at Monger, as it's very personal (hypothetically).
