Letter to the editor: State of medicine today is very sad

Article

A reader says that doctors today are under too much scrutiny and have too many requirements placed on them.

I have been reading Medical Economics cover to cover for 25 years, and it’s so sad that we are under the microscope so much. I find the new doctors just out of residency are so easygoing and see fewer patients and are less caring. We are prostituting ourselves by hiring physician extenders to make ends meet. Our electronic health records are slowing us, as are all the requirements we have to meet, such as
recertification and continuing medical education requirements.

It’s ridiculous. Who is going to take care of us? It’s all very sad and defeating.
