The new doctor-patient paradigm

Posted Nov 18 2008 12:13am

The new doctor-patient paradigm - Medical Economics: "Wesley J. Sugai, a solo pediatrician in Kailua-Kona, HI, thinks the rapid growth of large group practices has fueled the move to more impersonal care. 'The patient belongs to the group rather than to an individual physician,' he says. 'Hence the erosion of the classic doctor-patient relationship. It's now shallow, impersonal, and unsatisfying for both doctor and patient.'"
